After a day away from the diamond, the A's are back at it today, as they take on Arizona. An old friend gets the starting nod for the D-Backs, while Bob Geren sends right-hander Vin Mazzaro to the mound for Oakland.
Also slated to pitch are Jerry Blevins, Gio Gonzalez, Josh Outman, and Michael Wuertz.
The A's are 7-6-1 in Cactus League play (including split-squad action) and are not even halfway into a schedule that features an Oakland-record 37 Spring Training games. So while we're still 25 days from the real deal, there is ample time to get out to the desert. And for those so lucky, it's like Christmas in March.
