Open Thread: Game 112 - A's at Blue Jays

Gio Gonzalez is reportedly on his way, presumably having tossed a tourniquet in his suitcase to help stop the bleeding that has become the 2008 Oakland A's. Having lost 16 of 18, Oakland turns to Greg Smith hoping Smith can get deep into the game after the last three starting pitchers have gone 2, 3.1, and 3 innings respectively.

"It is always darkest before the dawn" - I'm ready for dawn. The starting lineups:

R. Sweeney - RF
Suzuki - C
Cust - LF
Thomas - DH
Gonzalez - CF
Ellis - 2B
Hannahan - 3B
Crosby - SS
Barton - 1B

Scutaro - 2B

Rios - CF
Overbay - 1B
Barajas - C
