DLD 4/16/08 Welcome to the AL West

Tonight the A's play host to the first divisional games of the year, as the Seattle Mariners, with, who they hope won't be there own version of Rich Harden on the mound tonight.  Joe Blanton will be facing Felix Hernandez tonight as we see how Jack Cust does against a right handed fastball pitcher.

With Seattle right-hander Felix Hernandez scheduled to start Wednesday, Geren plans to get Jack Cust, a left-handed slugger, into his starting lineup for the first time in four days. Another lefty, third baseman Jack Hannahan, is expected to start for the first time in four games, too.

Cust and Hannahan have been mired in a slump that has them a combined 1-for-31 going into Wednesday's game.

So maybe Chavy is not having a setback.

 

Crede is about four months ahead of Chavez, and like Chavez, he required an epidural when he first returned to baseball activity because of soreness when running and fielding. Chavez has had two epidurals, but he was trying to come back a little more quickly; Crede resumed hitting five months after his procedure, and Chavez started four months afterward. The setbacks that Chavez has had, Crede said, are to be expected. He had them, too.
