Open Thread: Game 59 (Oakland Athletics at Boston Red Sox)

Will the Bitey Parrot point his beak towards us or our enemies? Will he favor us and break our losing streak?

The A's find themselves fighting a 4 game losing streak against the Yankees (of the New York and Boston variety). Today's morning game features Cahill vs Beckett in a match for the ERA title (at least before Cahill's recent struggles).

The A's really need to get a grip, as the team's recent strength (pitching) has faltered recently, and the bullpen is struggling and tired from yesterday's game. All I can say is, if the offense remembers what they did yesterday and gives Cahill 6 runs, and Cahill remembers what life was like Pre-Yanks, we should be fine.

On a side note: Are we sure that Josh Beckett isn't an Athletic already? Good pitching numbers with a thousand injuries? Sounds all too familiar.

baseballgirl: Here are your lineups (thanks, BaseballPress). Ellis is batting fifth. No sign of Suzuki or Crisp. Good morning; Happy Weekend!

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
