In what is a blow to the A's already-meager offensive choices, Brandon Inge just went on the DL, leaving exactly nobody in the lineup today. Normally, I don't advocate putting pressure on the starting pitcher by letting him know that he'd better be perfect against the formidable Texas lineup. In Texas. However, Brandon McCarthy had better be perfect against his old team with this crew starting behind him:
Yes, Rosales is starting at first base. Yes, Suzuki and Donaldson are batting fifth and sixth. The A's will be facing Matt Harrison, who I'm sure will look like Cy Young.
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
