OAKLAND–On the today’s podcast with Charlie O, the A’s started off well in their ball game Monday against the Chicago White Sox one of the things that was a positive was that A’s pitcher Jharel Cotton pitched in that game and the A’s have been really concerned about him. Cotton had developed a blister on his pitching hand on his thumb. For a pitcher when you start developing a blister that becomes of a grave concern it didn’t seem to bother him he pitcher pretty well. You can tell he’s been laid off for a little bit because his accuracy was not as good as it might have been.

Manager Bob Melvin said on Saturday that the offense just didn’t have anything. The things with the A’s their just not putting up runs although they looked much better on Tuesday coming from behind on the Sox with two runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a one a run lead at the Coliseum. When the A’s are scoring they seemed to be scoring late in games and their not putting up number of runs to be competitive.
