Open Thread: Game 151 - A's vs. Rangers

New, comments

The A’s face off against the Rangers for the last time this season, as they try to sweep the four game series on their quest for .500. Lenny DiNardo will try to wind down his season on a positive note after the shellacking he took his last time out from these Rangers.

On the opposite side of the hill will be Vicente Padilla, facing off against the A’s offense, who will try to provide DiNardo with some run support.

Another win today will get the A’s to just one game under .500, and will go a long way towards securing third place. This season is not what we expected, nor hoped for, but it’s still fun seeing the A’s win; especially when the games are a rookie showcase.
