Open Thread: Game 7 - A's at Angels

He's a lefty with good control but not great stuff. He "knows how to pitch" but he's hittable. He's pitching in the #2 slot in the rotation but he's probably more of a "#4 guy."

That's right, I'm talking about the amazing Dallas Joe Braden-Saunders, now with 18 toes and a barrel's worth of grit.

Get our your Sex Ed manual because today is the rubber game of this 3-game series. Kurt Suzuki is practicing abstinence, while Mark Ellis isn't "playing the field" but may still get to third base -- oooooooh!

And lock up your babies, protect your puppies: Eric Patterson gets his first start today, as does the other of our "Out Of Options Brothers," Jake Fox.
