Open Thread: Game 1 - A's at Angels

New, 418 comments

Opening Night is upon us, and what better way to start things off than with the A's facing off against their bitter rivals to the south, that team which has had a stranglehold on the American League West the last two years, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (as if they needed such a length intro).

Both clubs have had to reshuffle their starting rotations due to ailing arms, but the season waits for no one so instead of Justin Duchscherer and John Lackey, we get  a pair of lefties, Dallas Braden for the A's, and Joe Saunders for Team Halo.

All eyes will surely be on the new A's, with the likes of Matt Holliday and Jason Giambi expected to revive an offense that was rather offensive (not the good kind) last season.

Thanks to the person that provides lineups.
