Open Thread: Game 138 - A's vs. Mariners

New, 203 comments

The A's and Joe Kennedy with a 7-9 record and a 6.02 ERA take on the Mariners and Joel Pineiro with a 5-9 record and a 5.59 ERA.

The A's welcome back Mark Kotsay and give Kendall a night off. We'll see if it sparks the offense or not. The lineup is shaken up a bit, thanks to all the missing players.

It looks like this:

Ellis
Kotsay
Payton
Chavez
Hatteberg
Scutaro
Johnson
Swisher
Melhuse

I'm not sure I like Payton hitting third, but the A's don't have many other options at this point.

The Mariners counter with this lineup:

Suzuki
Strong
Ibanez
Sexson
Beltre
Lopez
Morse
Betancourt
Ojeda

We just all lost power in North Sacramento. Let's hope that isn't a foreshadowing of the A's offense tonight.

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