Welcome to the Coliseum! Be sure to pick up a stuffed elephant on your way in. Not quite as cute as your mascot, swimming happily in your stadium, but it'll have to do. Oh, and can you please not play well for three more days? I like you, I do, but just not right now.
Trevor Cahill and the A's face off against Scott Kazmir and the Rays as the A's offense will try to get something going against the (YET ANOTHER) left-handed pitcher.
Contrary to popular supposition, both Chavez and Nomar are in the lineup. Playing the part of the first baseman will be Bobby Crosby. I've reported Travis Buck missing, presumed kidnapped.
