Open Thread: Game 9 - A's vs. Toronto

New, comments

Smokin Joe Blanton with a 0-0 record and a 3.60 ERA takes on Dave Bush with an 0-1 record and a 5.40 ERA.

The A's look to salvage one win from this series with the hot-hitting Jays.

The A's lineup looks like this:

Kotsay
Kendall
Chavez
Durazo
Hatteberg
Ginter
Thomas
Swisher
Ellis

Thomas stays in the lineup a second straight night, and the top of the lineup returns to a look a little closer to the beginning of the year. It'd be really nice if the A's could get Kendall, Chavez and Durazo going.

The Jays lineup looks like this:

Catalanotto
Hudson
Wells
Hinske
Hillenbrand
Zaun
Rios
Adams
Johnson

For those of you during the offseason who were wondering why Gregg Zaun's name kept coming up as a possible replacement for the departed Damian Miller (and before the A's got Kendall), well, many of you now know why Beane reportedly pursued Zaun.

Let's get one boys and feel good going into facing Anaheim on Friday.

LET'S GO A'S!!!
