Facing the same team twice in week is not easy to do. That’s a tough lineup to face once and he does it twice in a week and was outstanding.” Sean Murphy and Mitch Moreland homered for the A’s. Fiers lost in his season debut as Oakland fell to 2-4 since winning 13 straight.

OAKLAND (KPIX 5) — Ahead of what is expected to be a big Mother’s Day weekend for restaurants in the Bay Area, likely the biggest since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many establishments are struggling to find workers. Many are deciding to celebrate by eating out, but there’s a problem. Restaurants can’t find workers to fully staff the big day or any other day.

Opinion by W. Kamau Bell Updated 1142 GMT (1942 HKT) May 2, 2021 (CNN) " United Shades of America " returns tonight with an episode on policing in America. And while that may seem like we ripped it from all the recent headlines, in reality the headlines just haven't changed that much since the show went off the air last summer. From the murder of George Floyd to the killings of Adam Toledo; Daunte Wright; Mario Gonzalez, Ma'Khia Bryant and Andrew Brown, Jr., we are having many of the same conversations about policing over and over. Many of us (like me) are getting frustrated that the conversations don't evolve. Many of us are getting stuck in the same rhetorical cul-de-sacs. And some of you out there won't even Google the thing that frightens you most about this conversation: Wait for it ... "Defund The Police."

Dick Monfort fancies himself a baseball man the way Bruce Willis once fancied himself a singer. The ringmaster may be gone, but the clown show remains. Before you throw a dance party on Jeff Bridich’s grave, remember this: Even if the Rockies just sawed off a very large, very ugly branch, the poisonous roots linger and abide. Bridich’s decision on Monday — mutual or otherwise — to walk away from this dumpster fire, blowtorch in hand, cures some of what ails Blake Street. Just not all of it. Not enough of it. “Dick has a clear vision for the Rockies,” Bridich said via a statement released via social media Monday afternoon, “and after nearly seven seasons as General Manager, I believe it is time for someone else to help lead that vision.” It’s the “clear vision” part that should make sink every purple heart in the Front Range. Because even if a symptom vanishes, the disease persists. When it rots from the top down, nobody worth a darn wants to work for you. Dick Monfort … [Read more...] about Keeler: Jeff Bridich is gone.
