Open Thread: Game 53 - A's vs. Blue Jays

New, 189 comments

The A's and Los Kirk with a 1-4 record and a 4.74 ERA go against the Blue Jays and Kevin Towers with a 5-3 record and a 4.14 ERA.

Towers has pitched some great games against the A's over the last couple of years. And this year, he's 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA.

Toronto is a better team than Tampa, so we'll see if the three-game winning streak can continue.

The A's go with this lineup:

Kotsay
Kendall
Chavez
Hatteberg
Johnson
Crosby
Byrnes
Swisher
Scutaro

Um...didn't we use this lineup for months? And what did it get us? A couple of eight game losing streaks and not much else. Why isn't Kendall leading off again? Ugh.

The Blue Jays counter with this lineup:

Hudson
Catalanotto
Hill
Hillenbrand
Hinske
Wells
Rios
Adams
Huckaby

LET'S GO A'S!!!!!!!
