Open Thread: Game 78 - A's at Cleveland

New, 361 comments

The A's have searched the land far and wide, on buses and on planes traveling east, west, north, and south, and they have finally found it -- an American League team with a worse record than the Oakland A's!!! In the American League, only the Indians sport a winning percentage under .400 -- .388, better only than the Washington Nationals, whose .289 mark would still lead the A's in batting.

The A's send Trevor Cahill to the mound tonight against David Huff (pronounced "ha-OO-gah-huh"), not to be confused with Charlie Hough. Or with Aubrey Huff. Or certainly not with Melvin Mora, because that would just be weird.

Today's "fun fact": At home so far this season, Cahill has walked 13 batters in 59.2 IP. On the road, he has walked 21 batters in 29.2 IP.
