Player of the Week

Regular readers will recall my saying last Monday that Jack Cust seemed to have got his groove back. A week later, Major League Baseball agrees, awarding him Player of the Week. But of course.

I got to see Cust’s third homer in four games yesterday at the Coliseum, as the A’s cut down the Rangers 3-1 in the final game of their series. With the Orioles in town this evening, I expect the A’s winning ways to continue. They’re presently one game behind the division-leading Angels, who face the Royals this week. Funnest part of the game yesterday, other than Cust’s two-run blast in the seventh, was Huston Street’s histrionics in the ninth inning. That boy does get excited.

  1. Not only is the “Jack Attack” back, but Mark Ellis broke his streak of no hits in 17 at-bats with a home run to win the game in the 10th inning. That blast completed a three game sweep of the Orioles.

    With Harden coming back off rehab, A’s pitching should be even better, perhaps best in the American League. Now is the time to trade Huston Street, who seems to be a real drama queen.

  2. The A’s pitching is already the best in the AL, but I’m all for keeping it that way. Street is just too exciting in the closer role, and he’s not going to be happy as a setup man.

    Have you checked out what Nick Swisher is doing for the White Sox? How about a .200 BA. Poor little dude.
