Bay Area Buzz 5/9: Warriors Here to Stay, A's Victim of Blown Call

The Warriors are Here and They’re Not Going Anywhere Any Time Soon

The Warriors didn’t just beat San Antonio in Game 2 at the AT&T Center on Wednesday, though they did that quite convincingly, to even this series 1-1 with the next two games at Oracle Arena.

More: The Warriors resolved about a million issues, beat back a billion doubts and re-raised the flag of NBA significance.

They’re here. They’re not going away, even if it very much seemed like it just one game ago.

That’s when they kicked away a 16-point lead in the final minutes of regulation in a Game 1 loss.

And then in Game 2, the Warriors held strong, held on and maybe showed that they’re a little bit better than the San Antonio Spurs.

Blown Homer Call by Umpiring Call in Cleveland Renders All Other Facets of Game Meaningless

The A’s lost what seemed to be a self-evident game-tying ninth-inning homer when the umpiring crew in Progressive Field watched video and somehow didn’t see what everybody in the ballpark – including the Indians – took as gospel, that Adam Rosales ball carried over the left field wall.

But every view in the press box seemed to indicate that the ball, which took a huge ricochet, hit the metal railing above the yellow stripe that marks homers in left field at Progressive Field.

I can understand having different views, different angles. I can’t understand how a huge bounce like that can be explained away the way Hernandez did when he told Melvin video was “inconclusive.’’

Oakland Raiders: Bringing Back Richard Seymour Would Make Sense if He Comes Cheap

If Seymour comes to his senses and is willing to accept a reasonable salary, it would make sense for Reggie McKenzie to look at bringing him back. When Seymour first joined the team, he was hearalded for his leadership abilities. He has been credited with turning Tommy Kelly from an overweight average player to a strong presence up the middle. He was also credited with helping turn around the losing atmosphere that had dominated Oakland locker rooms for years.
