We have some early bad news out of camp regarding the A's opening day starting pitching:
Despite a slew of ominous signs, Geren had maintained an optimistic outlook on Duchscherer's status through Tuesday, taking solace in the fact that his ace hadn't been shut down.
Now that Duchscherer has been shut down, Geren has changed his tune.
"His Opening Day start is definitely in jeopardy," said the skipper.
But Spring Training must go on, as Dana Eveland, fifth-starter candidate Jerome Williams, and potential closer Joey Devine are all scheduled to take the mound today, and Eric Chavez is penciled in as the DH.The A's will be facing Lance Broadway, which I think might be one of the best pitcher names ever. Can you imagine Hawk with the Broadway puns?
