Greg Smith takes the mound to see if he can keep the Rangers to 2 runs or fewer, as the A's try to prevent a sweep of the weekend home series.

Starting for the Rangers is ... Feldman?


And their five starting second basemen:

Well, since the on-field and giveaway unis are flashback to the late '60s and the Rangers starter and second baseman are flashbacks to the mid '80s, I'm going to venture a guess that the A's may once again have trouble scoring runs today.

On the other hand, the Rangers starter is a mediocre double-A pitcher who none of the A's have ever seen, so ... uh-oh.
