Happy Opening Day (and Easter weekend)! Technically, we opened the season last week, but I don't think it counts when our eyes can barely stay open for the first baseball game of the year. So let's make this a true Opening Night for the A's and win the game, going over .500 for the first time this season.
The gamethread will launch at 6:30, brought to you by my iPad, but until then, I have a question for you; no doubt inspired with the optimism that comes with a shiny new season (which HAS to be more interesting than the last): What would it take for the A's to compete?
Happy Baseball! See you back tonight!
