After 4 innings, the Green
Monster Machine (edit: whoops!) is steamrolling another AL East foe. (No jinx no jinx no jinx) The A's have a 5-2 lead, on the strength of mammoth shots by Chris Carter and Brandon #3 (Hicks, that is). Jarrod Parker isn't dominating, but he's eating some innings, racking up some strikeouts (6 so far) and comfortably holding his lead. The Angels made a trade, but no one cares because honestly have you seen an A's game lately? Holy Toledo.
