The A's and Danny Haren with an 11-3 record and a 2.41 ERA take on the second-place Mariners and Jeff Weaver with a 2-8 record and a 6.19 ERA.
After what could amount to be the most frustrating loss of the season yesterday, the A's see if they can build a little momentum from at least taking two out of three against Anaheim. I try to muster a dislike of the team from the Emerald City and I just can't. They aren't as unlikable as the team from the O.C.
The A's lineup looks like this:
Apparently Chavez is healthy enough to be back. Either that or he's just gutting it out because the A's don't want Murphy and Scutaro as the left side of the infield and they'd rather have a gimpy Chavy than nothing.
The Mariners lineup looks like this:
The M's thoroughly dominated the A's the last time they met. It would be nice to turn the tables in a four-game series. At the same time, if the A's don't win the division, I'd much rather see the Mariners win it than the Angels.
LET'S GO A'S!!!!!!!
