Open Thread: Game 19 - A's at Seattle

Personally, if there's going to be one "toughest game" in a series, I prefer to have it first and just like the first series of the year that's how it will be as the A's draw Felix Hernandez to open the series. Hideki Matsui has the night off and Conor Jackson gets the call over Ryan Sweeney even against a RHP.

Though their play has been as mediocre as their 9-9 record, the A's come in just 2 games behind Texas and 3 back of the hot-starting Angels. All this will be irrelevant if the A's can't get hot at some point, rattle off a few wins and distance themselves from the .500 mark...So how about starting now?
