What else can you say about the A's???

They are the true "America's Team." They are proving that even with your best player being bought from you, you can put a winning product on the field...and they aren't breaking the bank to do so like certain other teams. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Roll Eyes]" src="rolleyes.gif" />

</font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif"> The recap per ESPN.com...

Miguel Tejada and the Oakland Athletics simply refuse to lose, even when the degree of difficulty gets higher and higher.

Tejada got his second straight game-ending hit as the A's matched the longest winning streak in AL history with their 19th straight victory Monday, beating the Kansas City Royals 7-6.

David Justice homered and drove in four runs as Oakland overcame a 5-0 deficit and a terrible start by ace Barry Zito to equal the 19 straight wins recorded by the 1906 White Sox and matched by the 1947 Yankees.

With their second straight victory in their final at-bat, the A's recorded the fifth-longest streak in major league history and the third longest since 1900.

With the bases loaded and the score tied at 6 in the ninth, Tejada drove a sharp one-out single through five drawn-in infielders. The hit sparked a replay of the raucous Coliseum celebration on Sunday, when Tejada's dramatic three-run homer beat Minnesota.

MAN! 19 straight?

Hey Joltin, do you know what the MLB record is now that they've tied the AL record?

The longest unbeaten streak is 26 by the 1916 New York Giants. They won 17 straight before tieing a game, then won 8 more straight.

This is truely amazing. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> I was hoping Seattle would run away with the AL West title but ah well. I think the M's still have a shot but we need to go on a serious winning streak.
