Open Thread: Game 139 - A's at Kansas City


Hi, I'm baseballgirl, and I will be co-hosting this event, as we prepare to settle down for a long day of A's baseball. Hopefully this will be more fun than the long month of August, where even an hour of A's baseball was quite the commitment.

For convenience sake, there will be two separate game threads, back-to-back, but only one wrap-up after both games. Let's hope there is a lot to talk about; after all, six hours of A's baseball should be a dream for us, right?

I do love double-headers. And it's like Christmas; after not seeing one in years, we have the possibility of two in three days. It would be more exciting (aside from being completely unfair, scheduling-wise) if the A's were playing for more than just respect this season, but we will take what we can get.

First up this afternoon is Dana Eveland--fresh off his second excellent start since his brief stint in the minors--taking on Brian Bannister and the KC Royals.

And look who's back in the lineup!
