What do Stephen Drew, YonYonson and you have in common?

None of us are playing for the A's right now... unless Dallas Braden is reading this.

The A's return home, hoping to remain in the top spot in the AL Wild Card standings. Texas is not helping much. This homestand will be brutal, as Oakland faces Tampa Bay, Toronto and Anaheim.

The bespectacled AJ Griffin faces yet another monumental task, opposing Tampa Bay's David Price tonight.

Your lineups:

Hi Folks,
Just a note because many of you may not be aware of the policies around "gifs" and "pics" in game threads. One thing we ask all our commenters to do is to keep images reasonably small (height of 300 or less is usually good) so as not to slow down load times of the pages too much. Another is to avoid images that are "not safe for work" (NSFW) or that objectify people, as that can either get readers into trouble, make them uncomfortable, or both. You can refer to the Community Guidelines for any clarifications. Thanks, and Go A's!!!! -Nico
