Open Thread: Game 162 - A's vs. Angels

New, comments

Well, this is it, people. The moment we’ve all been waiting for. After a long, long season that saw today’s opponent go virtually uncontested in their quest to win the West, the final game is now upon us. I’m sure MLB hoped for a better series this last weekend of the season, one that would decide the west via a single game; something like the two ongoing races in the NL. I suppose it could be worse. We could be the Mets. At least we’ve had a hundred games or so to get used to the idea of staying home this October.

Today’s game features Chad ‘I was so good in the first half-what happened?’ Gaudin against Jered ‘My parents have a spelling problem’ Weaver.

I can’t wait for Spring Training. Open up this game thread. Talk about the NL, talk about football, talk about next year.

For what it’s worth; one more time: LET’S GO OAK-LAND!!!!!
