Just a “let’s get this out” brief: Thursday was a sad day for San Francisco / Oakland Bay Area sports fans because while one team, the San Francisco Giants, prevailed over the Cincinnati Reds and Dusty Baker in Game 5, 6 to 4, the Oakland Athletics had the visiting Detroit Tigers right where they wanted them in front of their home crowd, and lost 6-0. That’s right: the Oakland A’s were totally shut down by Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander. It was an epic performance in front of a hostile Oakland crowd on...

The Giants force a Game 5 Thursday at 1 PM PST. If the Giants win, they become the first NL team to rally from a 2-0 deficit to win a Division Series. Stay tuned. ...

This is a really nutty, off the wall, from this blogger’s head prediction: the World Series will feature the Cincinnati Reds and the Oakland A’s. Why? Well, as this is written, the Oakland A’s are one loss from elimination in the ALDS, and that game is on Tuesday of this week. But this is the same team that had 14 walk-off home run wins this year. The same organization that was down to the Texas Rangers 5-1 for the last game to determine the AL West Champion, and came from behind to win. So, it’s really hard...

The Major League Baseball (MLB) Playoffs are underway, and already, the beloved, vaunted Oakland A’s are in trouble in Detroit. That’s where they’re playing the American League Central Champion Detroit Tigers in the ALDS and are down 2 games out of a best of five, and thus are just one win from reaching the American League Championship Series (ALCS). Thankfully, the next game is Tuesday, in Oakland, as are the next three games. Meanwhile, the crosstown rival San Francisco Giants are in their second game of the NLDS...

Want proof? Just look at his Twitter feed. “If you’re looking for answers, you’ve come to the wrong place,” he says in his Twitter bio. “But, Jesus has them!...

The Texas Rangers become one of just five teams in American League Championship Series history since 1969 to win back to back ALCS series (the other teams were the Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics, New York Yankees, and the Toronto Blue Jays), and return to the World Series. And the Rangers did it in a way that could only be called explosive, winning by posting a football-type score, 15 to 5, and scoring nine runs in the third inning to pull past the Detroit Tigers and then closed out with five more runs in their final two innings....

Follow me on Twitter! | SF Chronicle version San Francisco and the SF Bay Area have developed what I call a “party economy” where to the layperson people have events with food and drink and music everywhere, but really are marketing gatherings to present a restaurant or a type of drink or even a car. These happenings are the lifeblood of San Francisco and are prevalent during the Opening Day Game of the San Francisco Giants’ baseball season as my video will show. The game pitting the Giants against the Milwaukee...

The above headline will catch you by surprise, but the wind is blowing in that way.  The point is that several people behind the scenes, in touch with the ownership group, and around the Bay Area are talking about how Oakland Athletics Managing Partner Lew Wolff has, as one person put it “blown $20 million” on the effort to find a new home for the Oakland Athletics. Another contact told me one would be “fired” if they lost even $8 million on such a development project so early into the process.  But the...
