As we mentioned in the recaps this morning, the A’s planned to file a protest over the obstruction call against Brandon Moss in last night’s loss to the Angels. That protest, however, is now being dropped:
A’s drop protest, say in statement they determined “the call in question was a judgment call and not worthy of pursuing further.”

Probably the right call. Even if the call on the field was blown, it was a judgment call by the umps so nothing was going to come of it.
Three more games in this series. The Angels have a two-game lead in the AL West.
