The A's take on the Angels with Dallas Braden today. The Angels send out Slingblade (aka John Lackey for those of you who might be new to the site).
Keith Foulke is scheduled to make an appearance for the first time this spring training and the first time in an A's uni since 2003. It will be interesting to see how he does and if he has lost a lot off his fastball as has been reported a few times. Course Foulke has never really been about velocity more than pinpoint accuracy, but it can still have a huge impact on his pitching if the difference in velocity between his fastball and changeup has lowered.
Obviously it could be a very rough day for the A's as they're facing the Angels ace and the A's are starting one of their fifth starter candidates. My hope right now is still that no one else gets hurt and that Daric Barton is actually 100 percent.
LET'S GO A'S!!!!!!
