A's WIN!!!!!!

What a day for AN to be down!!! I don’t even know where to start.

Ready? Go:

The A’s have claimed Rajai Davis off waivers from the Giants, perhaps to improve outfield defense?

According to Geren:

As for how many starts Davis might get, Geren said, "I'd like to see him play first. ... He plays left, center and right, and he's a good runner and good defender."

(To clarify, I think Geren means that he wants to see him play before he makes a decision, not that he wants him to play first base.)

Kirk Saarloos has been designated for assignment by the A’s, presumably to clear room on the 40 man roster, but the A’s have said they would like him back if possible.

And the rumors continue to run wild about a possible Frank Thomas signing, but Mike Sweeney is trying his best to nip those in the bud.

AND the A’s win, again! What a great win tonight. Gaudin pitched seven innings of sparkling baseball, allowing only four hits, while striking out four. Emil Brown had a sac fly, and Mike Sweeney came alive with an RBI single and his first homerun in an Oakland uniform.

The A’s held a 2-0 lead for most of the game, and after Gaudin squeaked out of some trouble in his last inning (thanks outfield defense!), Embree and Street slammed the door in the 8th and 9th, the A’s added the solo homerun for insurance, and cruised to the 3-0 victory to even the series.

(And on a side note, I forgot to mention in my comments yesterday how awesome Casilla was during his inning. He really kept the A's in the game.)
 
The A’s go for the series win tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully we will all be back here for it!
