Liam Hendriks’ shift in energy big factor in surging success with A’s | NBCS Bay Area

“For me, it’s just convincing myself that no matter what, I’m better than you,” Hendriks told NBC Sports California. “So it’s not necessarily arrogance, it’s just extreme confidence. But for me, if I have to think ‘Oh I can’t throw it here, because that’s where they’re good,’ that’s where I get in trouble. So for me, it’s just convincing myself that I’m better than whoever is at the plate.”

In the cards: Tarot readings suit A’s closer Liam Hendriks

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Liam Hendriks has put his trust in tarot cards and an energy healer named Rubi.

Given how reliable this versatile reliever has been for the Oakland Athletics, nobody is about to question what’s working.

Manager Bob Melvin has gone with Hendriks as his ninth-inning option night after night, and is thrilled for the intense right-hander who has finally found his spot in the bullpen.

Never one to stick with tradition and frustrated over his play last season in Triple-A, Hendriks searched for a way to transform his mental approach.

For those wonder how Billy Beane’s stuff won’t work in the playoffs this time…..

A’s closer said Golden State Warriors ‘treated us like s–’

Oakland A’s closer Liam Hendriks says he doesn’t follow the Golden State Warriors, who were the A’s neighbors before their move to the Chase Center in San Francisco for the upcoming 2019-20 season.

“They treated us like s— over here so we don’t care for them much,” Hendriks said to The Athletic’s Ethan Strauss on Tuesday morning.

Hendriks has played for the A’s since 2016, the year after the Warriors won the first of their three most recent NBA titles. He spoke about the difference between how the Warriors were treated by the A’s when they “sucked” and how the Warriors treated the A’s as they ascended to dynasty status.

Mind you, hasn’t this been the Athletics story since it went from being owned by people who wanted a strong team to people who wanted to shake down someone in the East Bay for a new stadium?
