Open Thread: Game -9 (Oakland Athletics at Cincinnati Reds)

Yesterday's game was rained out, but it looks like we'll have baseball today in Goodyear, AZ. As I type this, the forecast says 69° and sunny with a 0% chance of precipitation, so things are looking good. Brett Anderson will start the game today, and Craig Breslow is also scheduled to make his spring debut. Hideki Matsui was a late scratch due to neck stiffness when he woke up this morning, so Ryan Sweeney will DH in his place.
