On Headline Sports podcast with Barbara:

#1 The Oakland A’s after losing infielder Marcus Semien to the Toronto Blue Jays and Liam Hendriks to the Chicago White Sox the A’s made some brilliant moves acquiring four key players Sergio Romo reliever, Elvis Andrus infielder, Yusmerio Petit pitcher, and Mitch Mooreland designated hitter.

#2 A’s pitcher Mike Fiers was fifth in consecutive season starts with 29 or more win he finishes behind starters Jon Lester, Max Scherzer, and Zack Greinke some pretty good company.

#3 Fiers said coming into spring training that he’s used to pitching a full season after just a limited amount of starts from last season’s abbreviated schedule of 60 games.

#4 Turning to the NBA: The Sacramento Kings took another tough loss this time to the Chicago Bulls at the United Center on Saturday night it was their sixth loss in a row and then they had to turn around and play in Milwaukee a very difficult place to play against Giannas Anetokounmpo and company for their seventh straight loss 128-115.

#5 The Warriors have been playing .500 ball of late going 6-6 in their last 12 games the loss on Saturday night in Charlotte was a tough one to take for Golden State in a 102-100 final. The Warriors Draymond Green drew two technical fouls towards the end of the game for arguing over a non jump ball call that went to the Hornets. Green’s arguing forced two technical foul shots for the Hornets for the two point win.
