Game Thread #2: (Doubleheader) Oakland Athletics vs. Cleveland Indians

Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

Bonus baseball has been decided! The A's take on the Indians at 12:35PM today and 6:00PM.

Good morning, Happy Wednesday, and welcome to a long, long day of A's baseball! Boy are you guys going to be sick of me by the end of the day; I will be your host for both games, so sit right down, turn on your TV, radio and/or gameday, because today is going to make up for a very long off-season. Don't mind the unofficial game thread; it wouldn't let me post this game thread in the past. We're not used to rainouts, you see.

The A's play the Indians right now, and after this game, they will play them again! The A's and their 25 man roster is all we've got to work with since this isn't a scheduled doubleheader; the only player who probably isn't available is Sonny Gray, just in case we take a weird turn into 19-inning territory in one of the games. Sogard is so coming in to pitch at some point.

Let's get this party started! Scott Kazmir will be making his Oakland debut against his former team, and he will be facing off against the Indians' Corey Kluber.

Here's how we lineup for the first game:

The Cleveland Indians:

2. Nick Swisher (S) 1B
3. Jason Kipnis (L) 2B
4. Carlos Santana (S) 3B
5. Ryan Raburn (R) LF
7. Mike Aviles (R) SS
8. Yan Gomes (R) C
9. Elliot Johnson (S) RF
