Welcome to Oakland Sam, Jon and Jonny … each did one of the following: made a great play, pitched a great game, and got a great hit (to the chants of Jonny! Jonny! Jonny! … always good to have one of our own NorCal boys back on the team!)
Sam Fuld made a great catch and unbelievable throw from center field to the plate to save a run in the fourth inning, there was a view but it was obvious even with the naked eye that Derek Norris clearly tagged him on the back far before he touched the plate… Take a look!

Jon Lester pitches into the 7th inning, leaving the game with an 8-3 lead and to a ROARING ovation from his new fans! We feel very lucky and we ‘re very happy to Welcome you to Oakland Jon!! There was even some pretty cool signage! I will upload a few pics to go along with these videos!!

Well there was a much better bases clearing single by Jonny Gomes video but stupid MLB.com won’t let me embed it so: here’s the link to that! And up next Gomes gets single as some kid on KC drops the ball in the sun! (LMAO!)
