Adam Dunn on playing in Oakland: "That’s the best crowd I ever played against, I mean, played with, for, whatever it is... Unbelievable"

Tim Kawakami

And of course, my updated note: This is the 1,437th consecutive slow news day for sports in the Bay Area.

Tim Kawakami

You have to go with the guy you believe gives you the best chance to win. Simple as that.

Has anyone actually used their Seat as a floatation device? Wonder if that's true

Wrote this after Carr's big game Thursday--why the Raiders have to admit Carr is their best option already: bit.ly/1ljKf4B

Tim Kawakami

Carr is the QB the Raiders had to pick. If you delay a decision on the starter, that means you're going with the other guy.

Tim Kawakami

Jason Hammel cruising through 4 shut-out innings, only 51 pitches so far.

Tim Kawakami

A's scoreless streak now stands at 1 consecutive inning.

Tim Kawakami

Trade for Adam Dunn, score 4 runs per inning?

Tim Kawakami

Mariners already have somebody up in the bullpen. Young just threw his 29th pitch in the 1st.

Tim Kawakami

Dunn is so big it's hard for the A's to do the post-HR tunnel thing with him in the dugout.

Festus Ezeli

If everyone/ anyone can have it, I don't want it

Harrison Barnes

Quick shoutout to @ryanhickey0214 I hear things have been tough of late. Don't let life get you down. Me and @kimmieabeach got your back

Tim Kawakami

Melvin said from what he's heard from the players today, "I think to an extent maybe it was welcome."

Tim Kawakami

Was yesterday's blow-up spontaneous? Melvin: "Whenever you come to a boiling point like that, that’s not something that is choreographed...

Tim Kawakami

Started a question to Bob Melvin by saying he'd been calm through much of the A's slump, which is when he jumped in: "I’m calm today!"

Tim Kawakami

I presume the 49ers are getting these responses, too. It's not about a witch-hunt. it's about accountability--for players, coaches & execs.

Tim Kawakami

I'm getting many, many emails and Twitter responses from 49ers fans who are deeply concerned about the team's recent run of legal issues.

Tim Kawakami

I don't want to over-emphasize the nuts who just want to scream and froth, which I acknowledge I sometimes do. So I will point out...

Tim Kawakami

Jim Harbaugh is the coach, not 49ers mgmt, but if everybody else ducks responsibility, it will come down to him: bit.ly/1pArhrO

Tim Kawakami

All I've said is that the 49ers need to hold their players accountable for their actions. If you want me fired for saying it, then fire me.

Tim Kawakami

Tell me, how much about the way 49ers mgmt has coddled Aldon Smith helped foster an atmosphere of good conduct in that locker room? Zero.

Tim Kawakami

For that stance to draw the kind of fury I'm getting just shows something new and corrupt about the rabid part of the new 49ers fan base.

Tim Kawakami

Didn't say Ray McDonald should be convicted or released. Let the process play out. I just said players should be held accountable.

Tim Kawakami

What I wrote in May: 49ers could use a Carmen Policy type and I think Jim Harbaugh was indirectly signalling that... bit.ly/SZBVKy

Tim Kawakami

$30M true guarantee for Alex Smith, plus $15M more vesting next March? Yes, that's slightly better than Kaepernick's $12.6M true guarantee.

Marcus Thompson

This is bad RT @nickdomanico: I'd love to see that, but this team looks dejected and defeated.

Marcus Thompson

The A's need another 2012 September

Stephen Curry

Not always pretty but we got the job done tonight. Good test to deal w/ adversity & stick w/ the program. Gotta start better next game #USA

Tim Kawakami

Again, I only have praise for new B/R employees @mikefreemanNFL @Howard Beck @Kevin Ding @JasonPhilCole among others.

Tim Kawakami

And it is not at all shocking that B/R's readership would be incredibly offended by independent thought that is not team-mandated.

Tim Kawakami

Bleacher Report readers are furious that the site uses my stuff. All due respect to B/R's new hires, but I don't want my stuff on that site.

Peter Guber

heroes don't quit...the only true failure is the failure to get up

Tim Kawakami

Certainly not all or most 49ers fans are blindly backing wayward players. I just answer the angriest because stupidity needs to be zapped.

Tim Kawakami

Fascinated by the ideological construct of me "owing the fans" an apology. For saying the 49ers should hold their players accountable?

Tim Kawakami

Let's put it this way: I think if Jed York or Trent Baalke wanted me arrested, they could make it happen anywhere in the 408 area code.

Tim Kawakami

When I asked how SJPD got my cellphone number, sergeant suggested an officer who works for the 49ers might've provided it. That is weird.

Tim Kawakami

Sounds like someone in the 49ers organization gave the SJPD my cellphone number. Has the spin control already begun?

Tim Kawakami

A section in my blog-item referred to reporting I'd read, and I presumed that came from the report. I'll clarify that in the blog-item.

Tim Kawakami

Just got a call from the San Jose Police Dept. They want to clarify that the police report has not--and will not--be released in this case.

Tim Kawakami

But Harbaugh believes in things and usually backs them up. He's not the guy Jed York has chosen to decide discipline, however.

Tim Kawakami

Harbaugh-fans won't believe I'm saying this, but I believe he has the team's clearest moral barometer. It's from a coach's view, but..

Tim Kawakami

That doesn't mean York can't step back in on some football matters. But he doesn't want to--that's why Baalke has taken over.

Peter Guber

my thoughts on #careers ...there’s one thing you can plan on – very little will go as planned. expect the unexpected: linkd.in/1zAI4uF

Tim Kawakami

49ers fans used to make fun of other teams' fans for myopia. But I believe the new rabid 49ers crowd is the most willfully blind.

Tim Kawakami

I'm saying that if Harbaugh has said and does believe that (which is very possible), he can impress that belief upon Baalke.

Tim Kawakami

49ers fans are citing Whitner's paraphrase of Harbaugh as if it's a KNOWN team policy. I will repeat: It is NOT a known policy...

Tim Kawakami

Those citing what Whitner said Harbaugh said as if it's a known 49ers policy: It's not. No exec or coach has said or acted on it publicly.

Tim Kawakami

Only Harbaugh-fanatics could accuse me of being biased for saying let's see what the team actually does. Block-o-rama.

Tim Kawakami

Let's see what Harbaugh DOES. Or you can keep telling me I'm terribly biased for wanting to see actual actions. That's your call.

Tim Kawakami

But you're all going off of what Donte Whitner SAID Harbaugh said to players. Harbaugh to my knowledge has never said this publicly.

Tim Kawakami

Ray McDonald, Aldon Smith and the 49ers' non-existent player conduct policy (if you're a good player): bit.ly/W0vQhR

Tim Kawakami

Are those the kinds of fans Jed York wants?

Tim Kawakami

From those reports, it initially sounds like the 49ers did more caving on Boone's situation than Baalke & Marathe have ever done this late.

Tim Kawakami

Just another slow news Sunday.

Nemanja Nedovic

Tako sam ja jednom pokusao da uradim cik cak korak kao Harden. Napukla mi je peta metatarzalna.

Tim Kawakami

OK I'll be blocking a lot of 49ers fans today. And some that I've enjoyed talking to in the past, but if you're going to go nuts: Done.

Tim Kawakami

Note: Ray McDonald has always been one of the most popular players in the 49ers locker room. Irrelevant to this discussion, but just a note.

Marcus Thompson

Sad RT @AlbertBreer: So we couldn't make it a week before seeing how the new domestic violence policy will play out.

Tim Kawakami

And... the A's just traded for Adam Dunn. Gave up minor-league pitcher Nolan Sanburn.

Tim Kawakami

Harbaugh & Baalke emphasized Aldon Smith's punishment was up to the league, not the 49ers. That's an abandonment of principle.

Tim Kawakami

This is why I've been pounding the 49ers on Aldon Smith for months. What are their standards for player behavior? They never had an answer.

Tim Kawakami

The 49ers have already sent a crystal clear message with Aldon Smith: If you're good enough, they'll ignore just about anything.

If the A's go 17-10 the rest of the way, they get to 95 wins. Which might or might not be enough to win the AL West.

If the Giants go 17-10 the rest of the way, they get to 90 wins. Which might be the NL West winning number.
