Open Thread: Game 54 - A's vs. Orioles

New, 426 comments

I believe introductions are in order: A's, this is the 1/3 mark; 1/3 mark, the A's. Oakland takes a 4-game winning streak into tonight's Jordin Sparks concert game, sending righty starter Trevor Cahill to the mound against something the Orioles call a "Berken." Don't ask me about Berken's stock (ask Rick Schu). About what I can tell you about Berken is that his first name is Jason. That's my scouting report: Expect him to be named Jason.

The lineup is interesting. Either someone really messed up on the positions or Bob Geren is on crack. Or both.
