Open Thread: Game 44 - A's at Tampa Bay

New, comments

The A's and Seth "Bullock" Etherton with a 1-0 record and a 4.91 ERA go against the Devil Rays and Doug Waechter with a 1-3 record and a 5.80 ERA.

The A's are looking to gain back some respect after their last trip into Tampa Bay. In particular, Jason Kendall needs to control the Rays running attack. This team ran wild on the A's last time.

Here is the A's lineup:

Kotsay
Kendall
Chavez
Hatteberg
Kielty
Durazo
Ellis
Watson
Scutaro

The Rays counter with this group:

Crawford
Lugo
Huff
Lee
Phelps
Green
Sanchez
Hall
Gonzalez

Ken Macha was on the pregame show talking about the A's controling the amount of walks. He said he'd rather see the hits increase and the walks go back down. We'll see if Etherton complies with his request and pounds the zone.

LET'S GO A'S!!!
