A’s prop comic Reddick faces challenge

The Chronicles of Reddick, as written in an impossibly packed car?

He is stuck between a sugary frosting and a hard place here, because while he did his best to hold off this day, he went to a costume in Episode 13, and so he can’t really go back to his uniform.

And frankly, he may also have to finally abandon the Cool Whip and expand his repertoire to include pies, cakes and other pastries. Maybe even the tried-and-true seltzer-down-the-pants.

The spectacle has to grow, or it dies.

I eagerly await the day that A’s broadcasts resemble silent movie gags.

Huh, he really should have stayed in Crazy Clown Town.

"That puts him dangerously close to Brian Wilson-Sasquatch territory, and in a place where Dennis Rodman’s wedding dress photo shoot is not that far over the horizon."

Oh, for ####'s sake! Seriously, does anyone in the Bay Area hate the A's more?

Ratto is just jealous because he can't fit into his Spiderman Underoos anymore.

Seriously is right. On July 16, it was "The A's Postseason Begins Now."
Then the A's went like 13-7, so now it's "winning makes things difficult for A's."
Winning is BETTER, Ray Ratto. BETTER.

The only prop comic worth watching was Bobby Hill, and even he wasn't that good.
