Still no official word or Tweetings on who's up and who's down, but from all appearances -- including a Jane Lee story on the A's official site -- it does appear that CC is on his way to face the suddenly Wak-less M's, and JL may indeed be accompanying him to the Pacific Northwest for this evening's series opener.

More details as soon as Jane, Susan Slusser or someone reputable and informed like them Tweets 'em... in the meantime, I started this new thread so your browsers don't crash the entire internet from so many comments.

OK, lunchtime!
