Have we really played 34 games already? Swear it was just Opening Night.
The A's try to steal the series from the Texas Rangers following last night's shellacking. They will have to solve C.J. Wilson if they are to pull this one out and grab a share of the top spot in the American League West standings. Ben Sheets, who was solid in his last outing against Tampa Bay, will take the ball for Bob Geren.
Thursday morning baseball. Is there anything quite like it?
