My entire world is crashing down around me. Grant Balfour blew a save, the A's lost a game to the Astros, and my driver's side window won't roll down for some reason. I don't even know what to believe in anymore.

A.J. Griffin will try to restore my faith in humanity today, as he takes the mound against Bud Norris. Yoenis Cespedes is back in the lineup, and Chris Young gets to enjoy Oakland's last game in Houston from the bench.

The game isn't televised because Bud Selig hates you and, from where he's sitting, you just look like a bunch of ants to him.
