Open Thread: Game 156 - A's at Cleveland

New, comments

Countdown to .500 begins ... now.

If the A's don't want to finish with a losing record, they have to run the table the rest of the way.

Starting tonight, with Dan Haren trying once again for win #15 against Paul "Hi, my name is Paul, and I've enriched Mitt Romney by untold thousands of dollars" Byrd.

Anyone know what happened to Donnie Murphy? Is his strain still bothering him, or does he have Melhuse Syndrome?

And, in news of the sun-rises-in-east/dog-bites-man/monkeyball-flings-poo variety, mikeA's grip on his $20 bill becomes yet a little more tenuous.
