On the Oakland A’s podcast with Charlie O:

#1 A’s pitcher Sean Manaea had all his stuff working in New York on Sunday after taking more than a year off he looked sharp in his first start back.

#2 Although it would not be permitted because of the pitch count, did Manaea have enough in the tank to pitch a complete game?

#3 The bullpen faltered in the ninth inning and the New York Yankees came back from being down 4-0 and won it 5-4.

#4 Going into the postseason and the wild card, you’ve seen the A’s in the past struggle with the one-game wild card. Do you see that happening to this team again?

#5 The A’s open a three-game series with the Angels on Tuesday night. The Angels will start Jamie Barria (4-7, 6.10 ERA) against the A’s Mike Fiers (13-3, 3.40 ERA).
