Stephen Curry

Day 2 of Camp... keep working

Tim Kawakami

Great mic'd up piece w/Antoine Bethea from 49ers.com, and tons of Jim Tomsula, too. Tomsula is beloved: bit.ly/1CGcyPn

Matt Steinmetz

Weren't #SFGiants leading Division by 10 games at one point this year? So, if they lose tonight, did they collapse?

Matt Steinmetz

Do you really think A's, relying on Sogard, Punto, Fuld, Norris, Vogt, Lowrie, etc., is "best team?" C'mon, they played well early.

Matt Steinmetz

My parents were English teachers. "Collapse" way too strong. "Collapse" would have been if A's failed to get into postseason.

Matt Steinmetz

I was born Sept. 26, 1964, near Philly -- amid Phillies' 10-game losing streak to miss postseason. I know collapses and this wasn't one.

Stephen Curry: "I would love to play every single game of mine at Oracle." facebook.com/video.php?v=10…

Matt Steinmetz

A collapse is when a team with superior talent or in total control completely loses it. A's were nice team & made postseason.

Matt Steinmetz

You can't call what A's did a "collapse." They were WC team. Now, Dallas Mavericks in '07 vs. Warriors? That was a collapse.

Marcus Thompson

ICYMI: A's collapse in Wild Card just like they did in the season pattern. This is just who they are: bit.ly/YL03TD

Marcus Thompson

Ecstatic! lol RT @Burnetteee: you don't think billy beane is happy with what he got from Lester???

Marcus Thompson

I won't stay here another night If I gotta sacrifice Who I am on the inside I'd rather be an outsider #Anomaly

Andrew Bogut

Shooting, Finishing, Ballhandling, Passing, Footwork, Cutting.

Marcus Thompson

Brandon Moss: "We know we played as good as we can possibly play.” A's usual, the A's best isn't good enough bit.ly/1nJ2OAM

Monte Poole

Bunting? Running? Could anything hurt @athletics architect BBeane more than being ousted by the kind of ball he detests? #OAKvsKC

Tim Kawakami

Sometimes I really wonder about humanity. But oh well, I can block 'em and I do often frequently always constantly.

Marcus Thompson

Moss: "I don't think anybody is going to look back on this game with regret. We gave it everything we had."

Marcus Thompson

Moss: "We played the best baseball we've played in a while."

Marcus Thompson

Tone in the A's locker room is just they just came up short. Nothing to hang their hats on

Tim Kawakami

OK yes, fire everybody. Geez, those wonderful execs and managers in Colorado, San Diego, Houston and Miami might be available!

Brandon Rush

Now everybody a Royals fan on IG

Draymond Green

C'mon man they have to get Perez a Translator man!!!!! Lol wow

Tim Kawakami

Up 7-3 with Lester pitching into the 8th... and eliminated. That's a deserved loss.

Marcus Thompson

Perez is so do for a big hit

Matt Steinmetz

Drunk or not, that guy's gotta get someone to look in on his dog if he ain't making it home.

Tim Kawakami

It's Otero. Only threw 12 pitches last inning, I can understand this.

Tim Kawakami

So it'll be Cook in the bottom of the 12th, right?

Marcus Thompson

Runner on 3rd with 1 out. What does Callaspo do with it?

Festus Ezeli

Good to have the squad together again. Day 1 ✅

Marcus Thompson

Look at that. A's playing postseason baseball

Tim Kawakami

KC has 6 stolen bases and 3 sac bunts. A's have 0 and 0. Hidden yardage!

Marcus Thompson

The Royals have now had their lead-off hitter reach in four straight innings

Marcus Thompson

Gomes replaces Coco and plays left, Fuld moves to center

Marcus Thompson

That was outside, but surprised Moss took it since KC's been getting the edges all game

Marcus Thompson

Coco grabbed his hamstring after fouling off the previous pitch. That last swing looked like he really hurt himself

Marcus Thompson

The Royals have had the misfortune of Perez being at the plate when it was time to take the lead

Marcus Thompson

I'm calling it. Here comes the walk-off

Marcus Thompson

The A's back to swinging at everything, no being patient at the plate. They're feeling the pressure again

Marcus Thompson

The Royals made that look so easy. Bloop single. Sacrifice bunt. Steal third. Sac fly home.

Tim Kawakami

Going into extras, KC has already used its big three relievers plus Ventura.

Marcus Thompson

Now that's great baseball

Marcus Thompson

Dyson steals third. Tying run 90 feet away with one out.

Marcus Thompson

Here we go. A bloop single and a pinch-runner who's sure to steal second base

Matt Steinmetz

Wow, nothing ruins this playoff atmosphere at my house with my two daughters like this 1-minute Viagra commercial.

Marcus Thompson

And Lowrie swings at the first pitch after two walks in a row ... smh

Marcus Thompson

Who on the A's is praying hardest for an insurance run right now?

Marcus Thompson

Is Doolittle game to close out the Royals? Check out his background to see what he's made of bit.ly/1rDgFZ4

Marcus Thompson

Two super-clutch strikeouts by Gregerson

Marcus Thompson

Perez with a super unclutch at-bat. But another stolen base puts go-ahead run in scoring position with 2 outs

Marcus Thompson

Melvin is sticking with Gregerson ...

Marcus Thompson

It would be a fitting end for the A's to collapse after gaining such a big lead

Marcus Thompson

Tying run now at second base ... Royals crowd back into it

Marcus Thompson

A's don't wanna see Billy Butler

Marcus Thompson

Tying run comes to the plate. Lester out. Gregerson in.

Marcus Thompson

Fortunately for the A's, that isn't even challengable

Marcus Thompson

I don't know ... that looked fair to me ... live anyway

Matt Steinmetz

That walk Josh Donaldson drew in 6th inning just as important as any of his regular-season clutch hits.

Matt Steinmetz

Take back everything I ever tweeted about Josh Reddick.

Marcus Thompson

Lester up to 10 straight retired and getting stronger. No doubt, the 4-run lead helps

Marcus Thompson

Coco Crisp, has been great today

Marcus Thompson

Ned Yost bombed that decision. Bringing a starter into a completely foreign situation is backfiring like crazy

Marcus Thompson

Moss has more than made up for two months of terrible baseball. #ChalkOneUpForCortisone

Marcus Thompson

Fuld, who was doubled off early, had to be hurried along by Donaldson who was on his tail. Josh knew it was gone. Fuld wanted to be safe

Tim Kawakami

Reggie McKenzie and Tony Sparano sat at the podium, but this Raiders day was all about the shadow of Jon Grude... bit.ly/1mNU6QY

Marcus Thompson

Ventura, who started 30 games this year, looked waaaay to amped. Moss took advantage and CRUSHED another one

Marcus Thompson

Donaldson lays off a close pitch and is rewarded with a walk. A's have runners on 1st and 3rd with no outs. Shields is done

Marcus Thompson

Seven straight retired by Lester

Marcus Thompson

Sorry, 72-1 when leading after 7. They are 65-5 when leading after six, per @radiojoee

Marcus Thompson

Another good AB from Coco. His teammates need to mimic his approach - which is how they got the runs

Marcus Thompson

Royals 72-1 when leading after 6 innings

Marcus Thompson

Shield getting the calls ... he's hitting the edges well

Marcus Thompson

Hahahahaha RT @JRAM_91: @TheSiccNessSj Now when I clown you say you were joking. Lmao. Alright man.

Matt Steinmetz

More worried about Lester right now than Shields.

Marcus Thompson

Meanwhile, shields has found a groove

Marcus Thompson

Now the season rests on the A's offense scoring at least two more runs

Marcus Thompson

One of the best postseason pitchers in baseball history looks frustrated and off his game - against the 14th best offense in MLB

Marcus Thompson

This place is LOUD again. Bloop single gives Royals 3-2 lead

Marcus Thompson

Lester is looking nothing like the postseason ace the A's had hoped for. 2-2 game

Marcus Thompson

Twice the Royals have called for time. Both, Lester didn't see and went into his motion, only to be interrupted. Adding to his frustration

Diamond Leung

Warriors' Steve Kerr oversees first practice as team's coach insidebayarea.com/warriors/ci_26…

Marcus Thompson

That's twice Fuld has turned a double into a single in left

Tim Kawakami

To have a chance at him, the Raiders have to offer everything to Jon Gruden, which might be the main attraction: bit.ly/YJBrec

Marcus Thompson

Soto is out. Norris is in

Marcus Thompson

Moss' liner down first baseline was caught and Fuld was doubled off at second. Missed opportunity for A's

Marcus Thompson

back-to-back one-out singles by Fuld and Donaldson hushes the crowd. Shields up to 55 pitches

Leandro Barbosa

Divertido papo com o pessoal da imprensa e dos blogs que fazem um trabalho incrível divulgando nosso esporte!! instagram.com/p/tlWknEnntK/

Marcus Thompson

A's catch a break as Butler gets caught off first, which leads to the third out

Marcus Thompson

Royals get one back as Butler rips a single to left. Would've been a double if not for Fuld's range

Marcus Thompson

Six straight balls by Lester

Marcus Thompson

Lester issues a four-pitch walk ... Royals fans feeling hopeful with 2 on and 2 out
