Open Thread: Game 17 - A's vs. Yankees

The A's have one last chance this afternoon to take a game from the Yankees, as they have now failed in their first two attempts. Dallas Braden will face off against CC Sabathia in today's game. I would mention that the A's have had success against CC in the past, but the fact remains that he is an elite pitcher in the AL, and the A's offense...well....

Let's talk about something else. How about the injury report?

Devine has been shut down, Buck and Ellis are on the DL, and Blevins is unavailable for today's game. Not the best start to the day.

The A's need to get a win, and get back on the right track before their home series this weekend.
