Open Thread: Game 11 - A's at Indians (and Giants)

New, 315 comments

The starting lineups? Heck, I don't even know which game this thread is for. The A's have split their squad to play the Indians and Giants and if you're dyslexic you might tune into the wrong game by accident, as the A's-Indians game in on 860 AM while the A's-Giants game is on 680 AM. Remember, the games are now at 1:00pm instead of 12:00pm, not because the game times have changed but because 12:00pm has changed. You see, 1:00pm is the new 12:00pm, just as "ZOMG!" is the new "No way!" and "tight" is the new "fresh."

You can count on a lefty starter with a unisex first name, though, as barring a "crap flu" Dana Eveland and Brett Anderson will be today's starters. Considered the "most polished" of the Cahill-Anderson-Mazzaro trio, Anderson has fared the least impressively so far (3 IP, 3 hits, 2 ER, 2 BB, 0 K). Meanwhile, Eveland's control has been a bit come and go thus far in the Cactus League, but he has been unhittable (4 IP, 0 hits, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K).

After the game recap, I'll be back with my take on Geren's apparent intention to bat Orlando Cabrera #2 in the order. So much to look forward to...
