GOG #29 - Marinating on the Mariners

Jack Cust, Chone (shakes fist) Figginseseseses, and the surprising Mariners make their way to the O.Co starting with a rare 1PM Monday gametime.  The A's pitching is finally getting healthier with Brandon McCarthy making his return from the stress reaction that kept him out for 6 weeks, and Andrew Bailey looking better every outing.
