Open Thread: Game 139 - A's vs. Seattle

"No, it's not 'ka-RIG-nun' and it's not 'KERR-i-gan' -- it's actually pronounced 'Throat Warbler Mangrove"'.

Oh, Trevor. Remember when no one could agree about why you were awesome or precisely how awesome you were? Now, ever since you started the season 6-0 your major league leading 13 losses have helped to underscore the common ground on which we can all agree: Cahill has been not so good recently. Not so good at all.

Cahill draws a tough opponent today in Michael Pineda, but with a win today the A's can win a series from Seattle...for the first time this year. Yesterday's 9-2 win marked the major league debut of Michael Taylor, who promptly made an error on the first play of the game before going 0 for 3 with a BB. He'll give it another whirl Sunday, but is not in today's lineup, which come courtesy of Baseball Press, who secured them from...well, who really knows?

Update: Oh by the way, McCarthy's actually the one pitching today. Oopsies.
