Open Thread: A's at San Diego - Is it Getting Crowded in Here?

New, 356 comments

We really need to stop meeting like this.

I mean, this makes it three nights in a row, and, well, maybe we should slow things down a bit. Don't fret, AN. It's not you. It's me.

Two teams currently residing in the lower region of their respective divisions face off tonight as the A's slide further south on their nine-game tour through National League parks to take on the Padres.

Neither club has enjoyed much success in interleague play thus far; the A's are 2-7, and the Pads 1-5 in '09. San Diego snapped a thirteen-game losing streak against American League teams with an extra-inning win over Seattle last night.

Am I wrong, or have the Padres not been the same since:

Holliday

Since you're here, I might as well provide the lineups. But the Cheeze-Its are mine.
