Open Thread: Game 97 - A's at Yankees

New, 498 comments

Aiming for a split in the series Oakland sends its warrior, Dallas Braden, to the mound against Sergio Mitre, who is the Yanks' choice to fill in for injured Chien-Ming Wang because Phil Hughes has discovered dominance in the bullpen. Last time the A's played a getaway game in the Bronx, the game went 14 innings before the A's ran out of gas ran out Giese.

With a RHP on the mound, the A's are back to the Barton/Patterson lineup most fans want to see as Oakland tries to use the second half of the 2009 season to find out what they have.
