has signed a 3 year contract with the padres. according to mlb dot com, he is regarded as one of the best managers in baseball during his 11 seasons with the a's melton led the team to an 853 in 1764 record with 6 postseason appearances oakland. he won manager of the year. twice as well. now that you turned 60 years old today became the second winningest manager tony oversight. >> according to aides will begin their search immediately for their next manager. but this is a major blow for the a's fan base as their future and hope and remains uncertain and that he made it very disappointing end to the season just missing the postseason. >> and back here at chase center. the warriors looking to keep their hot streak going early on in the season. the words left to prove to 5 in, oh say take on the memphis grizzlies here in just a couple of minutes at chase center. the dubs are off to
their hottest stars since 2015. and that's because they've been playing team basketball as well as high intensity defense. that's something the head coach steve kerr is talked a lot about and that's what led the warriors to their win against oklahoma city thunder on tuesday night that turned out to be a tougher battle. the warriors may have been expecting. they were down 11 at half. >> but they came on the 3rd quarter and really buckle down on defense. the dup's finished with 36 defensive rebounds. 9 blocks in 8 steals the dubs also have a score to settle in this game tonight the grizzlies eliminating the warriors during the postseason play in tournament last season. so they want to avenge that loss and get this off on the right just don't go stir crazy being at home for 2 straight weeks. that's the main goal. our honestly it's a it's too long of a time to be the only 8 games is a lot so we're going to have to mix it up a little try to keep the players. in a good frame of mind to not get stale. so i'm
not sure what that means yet, but we'll think of something so we got off to a good start. i always i'm placing. you know, we've got heat. you could keep things a team can go keep going at it. you know, in keeping, you know, winning basketball. >> they get home. stretch. so we've got a chance some special. >> tip-off here at chase center at 7 o'clock, by the way, warriors star steph curry tonight marks the 12th anniversary since his nba debut. if you go on social media, plenty of throwback pictures of the maybe face assassin as he was called back in the day tonight. we saw him warming up and he has not missed a beat. he was sinking logo shots per usual. so will be another exciting night to watch stephan action. it is 12 nba season now we've got to get to another team off to a hot start down in the south bay sports director jason dumas joining us live in the shark tank is i like to say, jason, what's it like down there safety center haven't gotten to experience it yet myself.
>> well, kyle and they're filing in the shark tank right now. they just let these fans in this fan base is excited for this team this year. it's been a couple of down years for the sharks their main issue over the past couple of seasons had been their goal tending. but this year the goalies are doing pretty well. they're using a goalie by committee system right now and they've pretty good then of course there leading point get are as of now, logan could tour. he has been one of their best players over the past couple of seasons. he is their captain. he is the guy they look to when things get tough. also have a young stud who had been playing well to meyer. he has 9 points as well. him and logan couture time for that point lead for the sharks. now this team is 2, 1, one at the shark tank therefore into overall and the young season so this home base has really
been doing them well now one thing their head coach has said in each of their 2 last losses. they have been tight games their second loss was to the nashville predators. it was a 3 to one game. but it was really only a goal because nashville scored an empty netter late so essentially to one loss. 2 one-goal losses this season and head coach bob has said his team needs to learn how to close out those close games because not everyone is going to be a blowout. our team is is not going to be a team or. >> we're going to out teams on a nightly basis. we have to win the one-goal games. we have brian for points and. you know, so therefore defense is so important. i thought in the first few games. we really defended hard well, and manage the pocket you know, didn't give up a lot. and i think we've got to get back to that. i think at times last couple games, it will spread out and we did manage a pocket as well. and i think you know,
there's there's too many too many turnovers. and i think we've got to get back to playing that more responsible way. we're playing in the first 4. >> all right. like i said earlier, fans are starting to file and sapd center. i haven't been here in close to 2 years. last time i was here, the sharks media western conference finals this place was rocking. they love this hockey team here in the south bay in the bay area in general and they are hoping to have another successful season. and in the early season, it's looking like this team is extremely talented. of course. what's the game goes final. we'll have highlights and reaction from the shark tank. but for now, i'm live here in san jose jason dumas from for sport. all right, jason, good to see you back in the tank. >> we'll be
