Well, the last Wednesday of the year comes to a close with the A's trying to win the series against the Rangers, and trying to move themselves into a very very distant second place in the AL West.
This morning, Dana Eveland will take on Matt Harrison (who shut out the A's earlier this month) in the finale of this series, as the A's try to get some momentum going into Seattle for the last series of the year.
Obviously this season has been a mixed bag; a little more disappointing than expected, mostly because it took the A's half of the season before they finally collapsed into 'rebuilding' mode. But there is a lot to look forward to in seasons to come, and I hope we will have missed baseball enough to welcome Spring with open arms.
