Oakland #A's third baseman Matt Chapman, when asked about playing in front of no fans tells @susanslusser & A's writers on zoom: "I think it's going to play to our advantage-a lot of our games are pretty quiet in general. We're used to not having too many fans at the games.''— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) July 10, 2020
