Open Thread: Game 102 - A's vs. Jays

Dallas Braden takes the mound tonight, hoping the rival Jays will bring him back to his earlier season form. The good news? Braden has pitched marvelously against the Jays in two outings this year. The bad news? He lost both games because the A's offense was shut out. Tonight's lineup will look a little different, missing the red-hot Orlando Cabrera (bye O-Cab!). The A's will be facing Scott Richmond, who has just returned from the DL. Here's hoping he's just a bit rusty; the A's already beat him once this year.
