Open Thread: Game 38 - A's at Angels

New, 493 comments

These days, the news is mostly the daily "here's who's back and here's who's gone." Kurt Suzuki is back, starting and hitting cleanup and Josh Donaldson is back at AAA. Justin Duchscherer returns to the DL, Chad Gaudin has been given a ticket out of town on the nearest train(man), DFA style, and Henry Rodriguez is back -- actually he never left, smart guy. And to further bolster the bullpen, the A's have found something called a Cedrick Bowers.

As for today's game, it's Trevor Cahill against Joel Piñeiro with Oakland trying to avoid a sweep and a second consecutive 1-5 road trip. The A's have lost 11 of their last 14 road games. One important note: The next time Daric Barton bunts, it will set up a complex chain of events ending with the unnecessary removal of a nun's spleen. Think of the convent, Bob, and don't do it.
