Open Thread: Game 82 - A's Sans Mark Ellis vs. Marlins

"Next time mayyyyyybe I use a bigger bat."

Amidst news that their longest tenured player has been traded to the Rockies, the A's begin the second half of the season, and the beginning of the post-Mark-Ellis era this afternoon. Trevor Cahill tries to give the A's a series win against a Marlins team that is an astounding 4-23 in June even after their win last night.

Stay tuned after the game, as at 6:00pm I'll do my best to take a look at the A's future and how they can right a ship that has recently asked the Titanic for directions.
