Open Thread: Game 46 - A's at Tampa Bay

New, 218 comments

The A's and Danny Haren with a 1-6 record and a 5.19 ERA take on the Devil Rays and Hideo Nomo with a 2-4 record and a 6.75 ERA.

Nomo dominated the A's last time out and Haren actually had a quality outing his last against the Giants.

The A's go with the following lineup:

Kotsay
Kendall
Chavez
Hatteberg
Kielty
Ellis
Byrnes
Swisher
Scutaro

Interesting that someone making over $4 million has sat on the bench the last two games and only played in two of the last five games (that being Durazo). Granted three of those were interleague, but he sat out yesterday and now today.

The Rays counter with this lineup. Let's hope we aren't down by 10 after the first inning again. Of course, Tampa did all that damage WITHOUT having their best hitter in the lineup, that being Aubrey Huff. It doesn't get any easier today as Huff returns to the lineup.

Crawford
Lugo
Huff
Lee
Phelps
Cantu
Hollins
Johnson
Green

LET'S GO A'S!!!
