So...What Would It Take?

TOKYO, JAPAN - MARCH 29: Yoenis Cespedes #52 of the Oakland Athletics celebrates as he runs home after hitting a two run homer in the seventh inning against the Seattle Mariners during the MLB Opening Series game two between the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics at Tokyo Dome on March 29, 2012 in Tokyo, Japan.

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!
