Open Thread: Game 54 - A's vs. Twins

New, 383 comments

Over the past several years, the A's and Twins have pursued disparate paths to the same destination: consistently competitive teams built around starting pitching.

Right now, though, the key difference between the two teams is ... Howard Beale Brian Sabean.

Late innings, small lead? If you're a Twins fan, you've got to feel pretty comfortable (even with the occasional hiccup like last night).

If you're an A's fan, you've got to feel pretty hospitalized.

For the A's, Icin' Joe Blanton. For the Twins, Carlos Silva.

Cust Watch: Day 3.
