The A's and Danny Haren with a 12-10 record and a 3.86 ERA take on the Mariners and Ryan Franklin with a 6-14 record and a 5.24 ERA.
The A's struggling offense looks to make sense of chemically-enhanced Ryan Franklin. Franklin has an 8.33 ERA since he came back from his suspension. So, could he possibly help cure what ills our A's offense?

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