Well, if there is one thing that the A's did well this opening week of baseball, it's winning during the day. Now, granted, this is not an overall good plan to win a lot of baseball games, since the majority of games are played at night. However, probably due Opening Day in Minnesota, today's game is a day game. The A's will start batting in Minnesota at 1:10, so you can't say I didn't warn you!
Brett Anderson will face off against Carl Pavano; Anderson will attempt to top Cahill's incredible start in yesterday's game. The A's will attempt to field the ball cleanly and also try to hit; I'm guessing the strike-out-wild-pitch play isn't a reliable one for their season's sucess.
I could write a book on what was bad the first week of the season, but what was good? I liked Cahill's performance yesterday. I like Willingham's homeruns (and new nickname from the game thread yesterday). I liked Matsui's double and Fuentes first save. I like Conor Jackson...so far.
What about you? Enjoy the brand-spanking new game thread; the game will be played soon!
Remember: DAY GAME! No baseball tonight.
