Open Thread - Spring Training Game 10, vs. slegnA

Christian Petersen

Oakland plays the Angels. Eww, gross.

Good news for the day: Scott Sizemore's hand is only bruised. That's good news for the A's, and great news for Sizemore, who already lost his 2012 season to a Spring Training injury. If you don't find this to be the best news of the spring so far, then it's entirely possible that you're a bad person. Just saying.

Oakland:

Chris Young - DH
Adam Rosales - 2B
Josh Reddick - RF
Yoenis Cespedes - LF
Jed Lowrie - SS
Brandon Moss - 1B
Josh Donaldson - 3B
John Jaso - C
Michael Choice - CF

Pitchers:

Dan Straily (starting)
Jerry Blevins
Sean Doolittle
Jordan Norberto
Ryan Cook
Chris Resop
Jesse Chavez
Travis Banwart
James Simmons

slegnA:

Mike Trout - DH
Alberto Callaspo - 3B
Howie Kendrick - 2B
Vernon Wells - CF
Hank Conger - C
Kole Calhoun - 1B
Andrew Romine - SS
J.B. Shuck - LF
Scott Cousins (THE GUY WHO BLEW UP BUSTER POSEY) - RF
Jason Vargas - SP

In case you didn't notice it above: Vernon Wells is hitting cleanup and playing center field. If you catch yourself reading too much into the results of this game, re-read that sentence and consider that maybe, just maybe, no one is taking this game too seriously after all.

Beat L.A.
