Oakland needs to use this series to get their season on track. It is the first time they are playing team that is not expected to make the playoffs this season.
Oakland is just one series sweep away from respectability. Perhaps a visit to a hitter’s park can get the bats going, right now they are averaging just over three runs per game and batting under .200 as a team. Matt Chapman has been a disaster so far and he is the guy then need to lead the offense. A hittable lefty on the mound might be the answer.
Chris Bassitt was the A’s best pitcher a year ago. He was no expected to be though so it is fair to wonder is he is just regressing to where he should be. It is a small sample size but his strikeout rate is down and homer rate is up. That could be dangerous coming into a park that often plays small.
This team was going to be operating with thin margins no matter what this season. They injuries took their best pitcher and best hitter too, Zac Gallen and Ketel Marte. They have not been a disaster but it is hard to see them exceeding expectations, especially if they can’t be healthy this season.
Madison Bumgarner is getting paid way too much money for the Diamondbacks to give up on him. I really don’t know what they were thinking with that contract though and he is an easy fade target pretty much every time out. He will beat a team or get rescued by the bullpen sometimes but not enough for it to be a losing strategy. Not with this team.

Free Oakland A’s vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
If you can’t tell I am very down on MadBum. God bless him for being a big time winner early in his career but right now there is nothing to fear with this guy. I am looking for the A’s to be able to get to him early and do some damage. Decent value with the team being down too.
