Open Thread: Game 110 - A's at Kansas City

New, 210 comments

Put on your sombrero, bring out your Derek Jeter pinata, and sip a Margarita with us...It's the first ever Casa de Batgirl and it's going to be Ay-yai-yai-popping! Check out the menu for the 2:00pm barbecue:

  • grilled Palmeiro
  • half-baked Krueger
  • battered Bueno with glazed cameraman
  • extremely fresh Yabu
  • lady fingers on a pair of toasted Huston Street buns
Then at 4:00pm, Joe Blanton (guess which menu item he chose) faces off against a man with plenty of loco but little to back it up this year so far: Jose Lima (4-9, 6.58 ERA). A WHIP of 1.65? 23 HRs in 116.1 innings? Now that's loco!

Because I'll be at batgirl's casa, and because batgirl's most modern communication device is a chisel and stone, I've opened up several game threads for you to roll around and play with throughout the game--when a thread hits 200 comments, go to the next one. Then I'll be back, staggering drunk (and thus probably more coherent than usual), for the post-game wrap up. Adios for now, amigos!
