Open Thread: Game 112 - A's vs. Angels

New, 400 comments

Well, it's the day after AN Day, which was a rousing success. Thank you to everyone who showed up and participated in all the fun, and thank you to Travis Buck, who made sure the game went into the 'W' column for the Athletics.

Today's game boasts one great pitching matchup: Danny Haren against John Lackey. I want Oakland to beat Lackey badly, and not just because it would be nice to win the series.

I am driving back to Los Angeles, so monkeyball will be on board to take you the rest of the way.

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!!!!
