This is a weird feeling for Royals fans. It's August 19, and the team is about to play 5 consecutive games against the 2 worst teams in baseball, which should present the Royals an opportunity to extend their current 2-game lead over the Tigers.

Game Thread #111: A's vs. Rays

Here's a crazy thought ... How about the A's win the first game of a series? LOCO, I KNOW!!! But mayhap they would give it a whirl? Because my blood pressure is exactly "quite a bit over not much" with Oakland's division lead all of 1 game thanks to a 6-6 run against the likes of Houston, Texas, and Kansas City.
