Open Thread: Game Eight - A's vs. Toronto

New, comments

Danny Haren with a 0-0 record and a 1.50 ERA takes on Josh Towers with an 0-0 record and a 1.50 ERA.

The A's who've faced Towers in the past have a collective .934 OPS off him.

Here is the A's starting lineup tonight:

Kotsay
Thomas
Kendall
Chavez
Durazo
Hatteberg
Ellis
Swisher
Scutaro

Thomas batting second isn't a bad idea and it gives the A's some flexibility off the bench if the Jays want to counter with Schoeneweis at some point tonight. And with six out of nine batters being lefties (or stronger as lefties), you can bet on it. Not to mention, suddenly the top of our order has a lot of speed.

Danny Haren will be facing this Blue Jays lineup:

Catalanotto
Hudson
Wells
Koskie
Hillenbrand
Hinske
Rios
Zaun
Adams

Let's get our first home win of 2005, gentlemen!

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!!!!!!
