I just moved. No, not my blog … It’s still right here at bbstmlb.com! But I moved from the Bay Area up to a small town in the mountains and I will not have full internet service until Wednesday! Yikes! I mean, that’s a lot of baseball Im going to miss and a lot of MLB news! In fact, I’ve already missed that closer Sean Doolittle has finally been activated and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!! So please excuse my approximately – oh say, five day absence. I haven’t given up on BBST and yes, I still work […]

Gonna be MIA for a minute … so don’t forget ...

@OakAsSocksGrl AND they took your pose!! MT”@Athletics Argyle Socks giveaway this Sunday http://t.co/GkizctLjudpic.twitter.com/lmeih6pGnn“ — Manuel Salazar (@msalazar408) April 11, 2015 I wrote a different post earlier … so sorry if you saw it, I was a bit harsher than I needed to be! I think the Tweet I recieved speaks for itself!  I’m always going to be a fan of the Athletics franchise from Philadelphia to Kansas City to Oakland and (HOPEFULLY NEVER!!) beyond! But I’m really kind of disappointed in the way the organization took my idea AND my pose …  … actually they took the two things I […]

A Tweet, the A’s, socks and this blog ….


UPDATE as of November 2, 2014, 9:30 pm: **I have yet to get an answer from anyone at the company I am using about when my site will be back up with archives and older posts. I’m frustrated (obviously) and I apologize that there will be very little to read here for the time being. Starting tomorrow though I will be back in the game, even without my archinves so check back in the morning and hopefully I will have some baseball news to share with you!, because I am aware that plenty of moves have already been made! Anyway, […]

 So the A’s asked me and a few of my buddies to appear on stage tomorrow as “personalities” from around the Coli. To be honest I am freaked out a bit by the whole thing but I said yes because my buddies – CocoFingers, Oakland Vader and Oakland Greenman all said yes and if I have Melvin’s Misfits by my side I should be ok … but big crowds staring at me… good publicity for my writing maybe … for my future sock company maybe but really? I’m just a big baby and I am quite honestly nervous! Anyways, here […]

Mark Mulder was once one of the elite pitchers in the game. He was drafted number two by the Oakland Athletics in 1998 and thus began his stellar career yet short career. As part of Oakland’s “Big Three” along with Barry Zito and Tim Hudson, he helped lead the Athletics to four straight playoff appearances from 2000 to 2004. And in 2001 at the young age of 23 he finished second to Roger Clemens in the CY Young balloting, going 21-8 with a 3.45 ERA. In 2004 the Athletics moved Mulder to the St. Louis Cardinals in a four player […]

Mark Mulder Staging a Comeback!!


The Oakland Athletics were having a quiet Major League Baseball Hot Stove Season up until early last week. Last Monday they signed free-agent pitcher Scott Kazmir to a two year, $22 million deal thus ending their pursuit of veteran pitcher Bartolo Colon. They also traded minor league infielder Jemile Weeks and a player to be named later, for the Orioles’ closer Jim Johnson who will replace free agent closer Grant Balfour. Balfour is in talks with a handful of teams, including the New York Yankees. After coming off a career year in 2013, Balfour will command more money than the […]

… SO I’M DONE THINKING THAT THE MAN I THOUGHT I KNEW WAS A CLASS ACT …. I don’t care that he is a nice person with a great family, Kim and the kids were always sweethearts too! I don’t care that he was nice enough to take time out of batting practice (of course he wasn’t starting that day but still) when I was 22 (and working for KICU producing the live game broadcasts) to teach me about the different pitching grips. That was a great moment (and I still and probably will never be able to even hold […]

Huddy to the gnats?! I think I’m gonna be sick ...


AND ALSO OAKLAND A’s SOCKS GIRL IN THE NEWS (kinda!) So I’m in a bit of a hurry but here goes: the purpose of this blog is to address 1. the remote possibility of the A’s playing at AT&T Park next season and 2. to point out that the pic that goes along with the article is a pick of me (Oakland A’s Socks Girl), DMock, CocoFingers and OaklandGreenMan … so I obviously found that to be pretty cool! Check it out by clicking the link below:Possibility of A’s having to play at AT&T next Season & OaklandAsSocksGirl’s Pic in the […]

A’s Playing at AT&T? Not Gonna Happen!


 … Red Sox crowned World Series ChampionsMake no mistake I am NOT a Red Sox fan …. but I am an AL girl and there were conflicting reasons to root for either team so I went with the Red Sox (you know if you read any of my blog before about the whole mess of the hierarchy of World Series Titles, etc). Plus, I like a few of the players in Boston like David Ortiz aka Big Papi! He so adorably happy all the time, he reminds me of Bartolo Colon a bit (#TeamBartolo) and also playing for the Red […]

So I’ve figure a couple of things out … actually after re-reading this I realize I have absolutely NOTHING figured out but that I am completely ok with that. Quick exampIe! I was going to start out this blog talking about RED #SockSwag for the World Series and I am completely ok with that … now onto the nonsense ….First off, I don’t really care who wins this World Series. Nothing really against either team except that the Cardinals have two more World Series Titles than the Athletics (I’d like OAK to @ least re-tie STL for second all time)  and […]

Well this probably is gonna be one of the more ridiculous things you will see today! I was home alone bored and annoyed with some of the things people were saying on facebook. Then I began snap chatting with friends, sending mini videos and such – a couple people snapped back that they like my little rants so I decided to rant to my phone and capture it on video! This is the result … it’s probably embarrassing and  through the video most you – the few of you who actually care about my blog (so basically no one)  – […]
