I had a long conversation with the bobbleheads this morning before I left for work. Kendall and Crosby think that Blanton is going to rock today, but Gagne's really skeptical. But really, what does he know? He's been out for the whole season.
I'd like to take this moment to say that it's about damn time. I kid you not. This gem of a quote appeared on the A's preview on MLB.com today. Chavvy should tattoo this on his forehead to always remember this moment. What's next? Heart and grit?
And folks, that's not a random sampling of hitting, nosiree! That's clutch.
You go on with your bad self, Eric Chavez. Maybe you can teach that un-clutch A-Rod a thing or two this weekend.
Oh, there's a game today! We have some players starting, they have some players starting... there's probably a lineup...oh look! Here it is:
A couple of notes: Chavvy is out; hopefully just resting, Crosby is in the 3rd hole, and BRADLEY is starting!! Welcome back, Milton!
LET'S GO OAKLAND!
