Open Thread: Game 62 - A's at Giants

The big news of the day is that Eric Chavez will undergo another surgery. The surgery, initially described as "undisclosed," turns out to be either:

a. A sex change operation
b. To install a clutch
c. A nose job
d. Another microdiscectomy on his back

That's right, folks, statistically there is a 25% chance that Eric Chavez is about to undergo a sex-change operation! Bloggers never get sued, right?

It's Sunday, so the A's must be "trying to avoid the sweep"...and...yup. Brett Anderson takes the mound, hoping to be sufficiently able against Cain. After today, the A's have 100 games left to find out whether Jack Hannahan, Bobby Crosby, Rajai Davis, and Orlando Cabrera can indeed be part of a World Series winning nucleus for years to come.

Here are the starting lineups - best lineup ordering of the entire season, in my opinion. Jack Cust batting 2nd, finally! Watch him go on a tear.
