Open Thread: Game 71 - A's vs. Reds

The A's try to win the series as they take on the Reds for the rubber game. Danny Haren, who is having one of the best seasons of any pitcher in the entire MLB so far, takes the mound for the A's facing RHP Matt Belisle, someone the A's haven't seen. Again, this could go either way for the streaky A's offense.

On a bright note, and I hope this lasts, but WELCOME BACK, MILTON BRADLEY!
