Baseballgirl would love to do tonight's game thread and recap, but sadly she can't as she's...AT THE GAME!!! Gio Gonzalez against Ryan Dempster as the A's try to get back over .500 and the Cubs try to pitch, field, and catch the ball competently, following their error-and-wild-pitch fest of last night.
Also, just a general reminder that as tempting as it is, please don't post "here's what just happened" MLB video in the game threads as it could violate laws in icky ways that could have icky consequences to quite unicky people. Thanks!
Conor Jackson is in the lineup and you can't miss him because he's leading off!
