Open Thread: Game 93 - A's at Baltimore

New, comments

The A's head into Baltimore for the debut of Jason Windsor. If you'd like to get to know the A's young pitcher a little better, you might consider listening to the AN interview. I'm already a big fan of the kid. He had a bit of that mustache gang look going on the last time I saw him and he sounds like a guy who likes to challenge hitters despite the fact that most scouts don't think he has exceptional stuff.

The A's face Adam Loewen with an 0-2 record and a 7.12 record. Since he's a lefty, the A's send out their stock lefty lineup:

Kendall
Swisher
Kielty
Chavez
Thomas
Payton
Bradley
Crosby
Ellis

Eric Chavez is apparently not headed for the DL, AND he's hitting cleanup. Huh. Guess that means that he won't be going on anytime soon, I just hope that he feels somewhat better given that he's had a week off. Thomas must've not been that sick because he's back and Crosby hits lower in the order than I can remember for a long, long time. Finally.

The Orioles send out this lineup to challenge young Windsor:

Roberts
Fahey
Mora
Tejada
Conine
Hernandez
Patterson
Millar
Markakis

Miggy and Ramon in one lineup...I know many of you loved Miggy and he was one of your favorites, but I will always fondly remember Ramon Hernandez for many moments, the biggest of which being that walk-off bunt against the Red Sox. I was at that game and it's one of my favorite sports memories of all time. I was hugging strangers in the parking lot and screaming almost all the way home. We won't mention what came after that (shhhhhhh), but Ramon was always one of my favorites with his bat and his ability to call a remarkable game behind the dish. He'll always be one of my favorite A's of all time.

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!!!
