Open Thread: Game 149 - A's at Boston

New, 277 comments

The A's and Los Kirk with a 9-7 record and a 3.87 ERA take on the Red Sox and Matt Clement with a 13-5 record and a 4.33 ERA.

If the A's can somehow squeeze a win out today facing the sometimes erratic Clement, then they'd get exactly what they were looking for heading into Boston.

And the offense could get Crosby back very soon. Perhaps as early as Tuesday. I don't have to tell you they desperately need something. This team has looked abysmal offensively against a struggling starting pitching staff.

The A's lineup looks like this:

Ellis
Kendall
Kotsay
Chavez
Hatteberg
Payton
Johnson
Swisher
Scutaro

Ellis has recovered from his food poisoning which is good because he's one of the only A's that has hit well.

The Red Sox counter with this lineup:

Damon
Mueller
Ortiz
Ramirez
Nixon
Varitek
Olerud
Graffanino
Cora

Louis will be handling the other open threads and wrap-up (he's going to work it into this week's ANtics) because I won't have access to a computer the rest of the day.

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