Open Game Thread: Game 105 - A's at Seattle

This afternoon, the A's and Lenny DiNardo, sporting a 5-6 record and a 2.41 ERA, take on the division rival Mariners and Jarrod Washburn, with a 8-7 record and a 4.05 ERA, looking to take the final game of the four game set, splitting the series on the road. DiNardo, while not as consistent as say... Dan Haren... has surprised a lot of people with his ability to start, eat up innings, and keep the A's close. Since his being thrust into the rotation in late May, the A's have sported a 5-5 record in his 10 starts. With any kind of good offense, his 2.41 ERA would deliver a better than .500 record.

Today, the A's will try and make up for previous shortcomings, sporting a fairly decent 1-5 top of the lineup, and a fairly "hold your breath" worthy bottom four to round it out. Were Buck and Chavez and.... Crosby... in there, we might be seeing the true 2007 A's. I also don't anticipate Scutaro providing all that much protection for Jack Cust, but what can you do? We'll see starting at 1:05.
