Open Thread: Spring Training - A's vs. Giants!

Welcome to the Anderson vs. Zito game thread; the one where your 2010 Oakland Athletics take on the San Francisco Giants! I saw the Giants play the Rangers on Monday night; Harden pitched. I didn't have a chance to see Anderson; though I saw Mazzaro, Cahill, Gonzalez and sort of Sheets. I'm guessing Sheets is better than he was on Monday. For what it's worth, I saw Posey play both games that I watched in person, and I was impressed.

Today's lineups:

Giants

Torres, CF
Renteria, SS
Sandoval, 3B
Huff, 1B
DeRosa, LF
Molina, C
Uribe, 2B
Posey, DH
Schierholtz, RF

Your 2010 Oakland Athletics:

Davis, CF
Ellis, 2B
Suzuki, C
Kouzmanoff, 3B
Chavez, 1B
Cust, DH
Sweeney, RF
Buck, LF
Pennington, SS

This could be shades of Opening Day, although I believe that Barton is missing and I think Gross and Patterson will make the team ahead of Buck (and I don't agree), but I like Davis' return to CF. I think they're letting us know that Coco isn't yet ready to play.

Let's go Oak-land!
