Open Thread: Spring Training Game 22

New, 141 comments

Dan Meyer makes another start against the Angels, only his second start of the spring. He takes on Angels stud youngster Ervin Santana who baffled the A's numerous time last season.

The thing is, Meyer is basically starting this game because Joe Blanton is facing future Hall-of-Famer Frank Thomas in a simulated game at Papago Park today. Thomas will also face Joe Kennedy and Kirk Saarloos.

If all goes well, Thomas is reportedly getting close to being ready to be in the opening day lineup against Randy Johnson. The A's have done a great job in letting Thomas take his time.

Nick Swisher has been hearing quite a buzz at camp. Hopefully he's got a can of Raid in his back pocket, just in case.
