On the Oakland A’s podcast with Jerry Feitelberg:

#1 Oakland A’s starter Jharel Cotton who pitched a 2-0 shutout a three hitter against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night and Jerry talks about Cotton’s make up

#2 Former A’s first baseman Brandon Moss was using all the “Bull Durham” clichés when he talked about A’s reliever Sean Doolittle saying after striking out against him and what kind of pitches he saw that Doolittle throws all fastballs that “blew the doors” and “painted the heaters” guess Doolittle passed the audition on Monday night

#3 Jerry said that Hall of Famer, former Dodger and Red Sox Pedro Martinez was right that Cottton reminds him of Martinez same wind up, same grip on the ball, same look coming out of the hand, same velocity, same look of fear that a hitter standing in facing at the plate. Cotton who threw a three hit 2-0 shutout against the Royals could have himself a Cy Young type year if he keeps that up.

#4 A’s manager Bob Melvin dropped A’s designated hitter Ryon Healy whose been hitting .194 from third in the line up to the six hole in the A’s 8-3 win on Wednesday night. Healy is still trying to get used to the DH role after playing third base for the A’s much of last season

#5 The 8-3 win was one that blew the doors off of the Royals and the A’s starter Andrew Triggs had a hand in that role going six innings, four hits and three strikeouts
