OAKLAND -– A’s players said their goodbyes to left-hander Scott Kazmir shortly before taking the field for Thursday’s matinee against the Toronto Blue Jays.


The A’s 50th loss of the season Friday shared a common characteristic with many of the 49 that came before it – a breakdown from the bullpen that turned a close game into a not-so-close one.
