Ken Macha, one cool dude
You won't find too much praise for an Athletic on this blog, but Tim Salmon's at bat in the 8th called for an intentional walk. We all know what the at bat meant for Salmon. I was a little pissed at Scioscia for bunting with Willits - by doing so he's just daring the A's to walk Salmon and set up the DP.
Macha had Street pitch to Salmon. Class move. Salmon popped up anyway. Maybe this one will go to extra innings.
