After what feels like FOREVER, baseball is back, ready or not, and it seems like even the best of us are having trouble predicting exactly what we're going to see from the Oakland A's this year.
Things to watch for, of course, include Danny Haren continuing his stellar pitching, a full season with Rich Harden (cross your fingers!), the Major League debut of Travis Buck, a lot of firsts for MLB veteran Mike Piazza, and Gaudin as a starting pitcher.
But let's take it one game at a time. The A's will be kicking off the season against their BFF's from last year, the Seattle Mariners, as first-time ace Danny Haren takes on King Felix Hernandez. This should be a well-pitched game.
If you aren't excited beyond words right now, I feel for you. Post all about it in the first real game thread of the year! Blez will take you the rest of the way; enjoy the game!
And here is your starting lineup for your 2007 Oakland Athletics!
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!!!!
