Buck Blunder 1 – Buck Martinez claimed that 9 players who were on the opening day roster are currently not on this team, either in the minors or out of the organization. I looked back and there are 10 which are: Jason Nix (DFA – Las Vegas 51s), Travis Snider (Minors – Las Vegas 51s), Mike McCoy (Minors – Las Vegas 51s), Juan Rivera (DFA – LA Dodgers), Jo-Jo Reyes (DFA – Baltimore Orioles), Kyle Drebek (Minors – Las Vegas 51s), Carlos Villanueva (15 day DL), Marc Rzepcynski (Trade – St. Louis Cardinals), Jason Frasor (Trade – Chicago White Sox), David Purcey (DFA – Oakland A’s -> Detroit Tigers -> Toledo Mud Hens). If you are wondering, Octavio Dotel was on the DL and Corey Patterson came up during the Seattle Mariners Series in April.
Buck Blunder 2 – Buck Martinez said the game was 6-4 in favour of the A’s, but it was actually 6-2.
Buck Blunder 3 – Buck Martinez mentioned that David DeJesus and Jemile Weeks both had the day off but DeJesus was in the lineup. (Contributed by @ShakeelSalamath)
