The A's and Smokin' Joe Blanton with an 11-11 record and a 3.60 ERA take on the Angels and Slingblade with a 12-5 record and a 3.55 ERA.
Well, folks, this is it. The A's win tonight or they sit on the verge of 2005 elimination. And Sacramento is getting screwed again with no TV. ARRRGGGHHHH.
Any way, here is the lineup Ken Macha is choosing to try and prevent the A's from being a playoff no-show in 05.

LET'S GO A'S!!!!!!! THIS IS IT, BOYS!!!
