Open Thread: Game 75 - A's vs. Tigers

After a terrible miserable awful little league forgetable week at home, where the A's won exactly one game, the homestand will close with a three-game series against the Detroit Tigers (who swept the last time they faced the A's) starting tonight. Brett Anderson, fresh off an extended break, will be matched up against a great rookie pitcher in Rick Porcello, who has already collected a win against the A's so far this season. Porcello has an 8-4 record with a 3.55 ERA in 2009, and he's only twenty.

Interleague play is over, so the A's are now back on the all-AL, all-the-time schedule, and if they have any hope left on the 2009 season, things had better start to turn around for the green and gold. Tonight's match-up seems like an unlikely way to start a winning streak, but that's what we're hoping for.
