Happy Wednesday! Happy Anniversary to me (3 years, can y'all believe it?)! And Happy September baseball! Once again, the A's are playing meaningful September baseball, and find themselves locked in a fight for Division honors; first place meaning so much more than it ever has before with the new Wild Card format.
The A's Jarrod Parker will be on the mound today; he hasn't lost a game in forever, but he will be facing a tough customer in Yu Darvish. Parker has quietly emerged as the A's ace, filling the role that Bartolo Colon has vacated late this year. The A's will have the red-hot Coco back in center today, Moss in right, Barton at first, and Vogt catching, stacking the lineup with the lefties.
Needless to say, this is a huge game for the A's, and one that would really put the finishing touches on their already-awesome last two weeks.
Here are your lineups:
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
