Open Thread: Game 135 - A's vs. Blue Jays

New, 283 comments

Well, it’s come to this: Lenny DiNardo will take the mound to try to stop Oakland’s skid, as the A’s face Toronto trying to salvage a game of this series. Welcome to the roller-coaster ride that is the Athletics right now.

According to MLB.com, most of the Blue Jays hit like Alex Rodriguez against DiNardo, so that’s something to look forward to; although you never know. He’ll probably throw a complete game shut-out.

The A’s offense will try their luck against Roy Halladay, as they have one goal: To score more runs than the Blue Jays.

I will be on a plane when lineups are announced, so I’m hoping this will summon the lineup fairy.

Loaiza was just claimed off waivers by the Dodgers. More news to follow, I imagine.

LET’S GO OAK-LAND!!!
