The "Yee haw, put in your hours and it's ice cream for everyone!!!" crew is at it again, sending Vin Mazzaro to the hill against Aaron Cook. The A's have made bad pitchers look good so far this weekend, so maybe they can make a good pitcher look bad.
Because he hates me, 67MARQUEZ informed me this morning that in 12 Sundays this season, the A's will have now spent 6 of them trying to avoid a sweep. Oakland's record so far in these exciting broompreventionfests is 2-3.
Here's today's group of players assigned to make me feel like kicking innocent puppies:
