On That’s Amaury’s News and Commentary podcast:
#1 Amaury, when you look back at the beginning of August, the A’s were in shouting distance of taking first place in the AL wild card. Now that they’re there, they’ve been playing unbelievable baseball against Houston Astros and the Texas Rangers to stay in first place.
#2 The A’s Sean Manaea has been great since his return. He’s pitched a number of shutout innings. What has he told you about how he’s been feeling since his return?
#3 Marcus Seimien and Matt Chapman hit home runs to lead the A’s to victory over the Rangers on Sunday and the A’s have the franchise record for the most home runs hit in the season.
#4 When you think of the A’s all-time home runs, you think of Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco, but with this A’s roster, it’s not the first thing you think of that this year’s A’s team would have the franchise record for home runs.
#5 The A’s have won six games on this last road trip in Houston, and in Arlington, no one expected the A’s to perform like they did especially after they got trounced on Monday, September 9th 15-0.
