Open Thread: Game 126 - A's at Minnesota

New, comments

Good morning and welcome to another exciting day of A's baseball! The A's will try to win their first series since 2006 who knows as they send Dallas Braden to the hill as the sacrificial lamb starting pitcher. The game starts bright and early this morning, so grab your coffee and radio and let's watch the A's win try to win not lose lose by only a little play baseball!

Braden will face Francisco Liriano and the Twins, who are just a game out of first in the Central, so they have everything to play for right now. On the other hand, the A's are just trying to win a series. But they have to start somewhere.

Some of us lived through the mid-to-late 1990's; we can live through this stretch too. Plus, all the cool people are in the game thread today (hint hint).
