Open Thread: Game 51 - A's at Detroit

Greetings from the Alta Bates ER, after I celebrated the A's move into 1st place last night by jumping onto a pile of friends, only to land hard on the concrete because I have no friends.

Dallas Braden gets the ball today against Max Scherzererererer, called up today to make the start after Armando Galarraga was pressed into relief duty on Friday. The man Galarraga relieved, Dontrelle Willis, was DFA to make room for Scherzererererer, who was once a very bright prospect for the Diamondbacks but who has struggled in the big leagues so far.

With Justin Verlander going tomorrow, if the A's intend to win this series they might want to grab this one. Kurt Suzuki has the day off, as Braden throws today to the perfect catcher for him -- Landon Powell.
