Open Thread: Game 39 - A's vs. Royals

New, 297 comments

Twisting the knife a little deeper in Haren, MLB announces that the A's wins leader (obviously meaning Joe Blanton), will be taking the mound today against Odalis Perez. Blanton (4-1, 3.48 ERA) has pitched so much better than I could have dreamed, and he always pitches well against the Royals. We need him to continue that tonight.

As the A's face the lefty on the mound tonight, I'm hoping that Chavez is just getting the night off for rest. I don't want to hear otherwise.

Royals:

DeJesus
Grudzielanek
Teahen
Brown
Gordon
German
Buck
Shealy
Pena

Your 2007 Oakland A's (I think!):

Stewart, LF
Swisher, DH
Johnson 1B
Cust, RF
Crosby, SS
Ellis, 2B
Scutaro, 3B
Bocachica (Wow! Wow!), CF
Kendall, C

My, that's an interesting lineup.

louismg is here to take you the rest of the way. Don't worry, he has great open thread mojo!

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
