Open Thread: Game 157 (Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels)

Loading Scores

Well, at least we've hit 70 wins.

The A's are mathematically guaranteed to fall short of their 81 win season last year, and they're virtually guaranteed to put up the worst season in Oakland since 1997. To equal 2008 and 2009, they'd have to go 5-1 in these last two series, and to equal 1998, they'd have to go 4-2. Yikes.

Either way, the A's are sending Gio Gonzalez (14-12, 3.33 ERA) to the mound tonight to face Jered Weaver (18-7, 2.41 ERA). He's good. Very good. I'm worried.

First pitch is at 7:05.

(Programming note: A new overflow thread will post at 8:30.)
