A's 8, Cubs 4

And the top ten highlights from the game...:

  1. The fact that there was only one game to monitor. LAA/OAK was cancelled due to the unusual spring shower pattern in AZ lately.
  2. Matt Watson. Double thumbs up today.
  3. My love for Mark Ellis knows no bounds, and I was one of the last holdouts. I think the Ellis story is among one of the greatest in baseball, and with the sport taking such a hit lately due to He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named-on-an-A's-site, this feel-good story should be the highlight of the year. But it won't be. Coming back after a possible career-ending injury just isn't what it used to be, I guess.
  4. Huston Street. But of course.
  5. The A's win! That's good!
  6. I even think we had a stolen base!
  7. If we can get a few more innings like the 7th, we'll be in good shape.
  8. Ginter was mentioned during the game, and not as the black hole for contract money.
  9. Witasick pitched uneventfully.
  10. Kendall threw out a runner!
