Open Thread: Game 38 - A's vs. Boston

New, comments

The sliding A's and Los Kirk with a 1-2 record and a 5.09 ERA take on Bronson Cornrroyo with a 4-0 record and a 2.91 ERA.

Cornrroyo talked a lot of trash about Jason Kendall in the newspaper when the A's were swept in Boston. Kendall stands in the batter's box against Cornrroyo for the first time tonight. I'm betting there is a little extra incentive there.

The A's lineup that will try to break the eight-game losing streak looks like this:

Kotsay
Kendall
Chavez
Durazo
Ginter
Hatteberg
Watson
Scutaro
Thomas

Kielty's injury means that the offense is losing its best player right now. Los Kirk is going to have to be extremely sharp to give the A's a chance tonight.

The Red Sox counter with this lineup:

Damon
Renteria
Ortiz
Ramirez
Nixon
Varitek
Youkilis
Mueller
Bellhorn

The Greek God of Walks, Youkilis is making an appearance at the Coliseum. Someone wipe that drool away from Billy Beane's mouth please?

LET'S GO A'S!!! PLEASE END THIS SUFFERING!!!
