Good evening and welcome to Oakland Athletics baseball! The A's check in tonight one and a half games out of the AL West lead, as Texas matches up against Seattle tonight. We'll keep a close eye on that game. Meanwhile, the A's will take on this season's nemesis; the Cleveland Indians. The A's should draw good crowds this weekend (I'll be there tomorrow), so let's see if we can't cheer them into a playoff race!
Things will look a little different for the A's offense tonight. They are missing Coco Crisp yet again, so Callaspo will be DH'ing and leading off. Hopefully not bunting. A.J. Griffin will be on the mound, facing off against Justin Masterson. The lineups will look like this:
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
