Open Thread: Game 53 - A's vs. Orioles


The A's take on the O's again today, with Josh Outman's second MLB start since 2009. Coming off of two wins, and more importantly, coming off a few games where they actually scored more than 4 runs, could this mean that the A's offense has turned itself around? Probably not, but it makes a good story.

What else makes a good story? The A's offensive 'blow up', if you can call it that, last night after Geren was ejected with out anyone noticing his absence. Hat tip to Josh Willingham for (not) noticing that.

For those NRAF's that don't have MLBTV, today's game is the Free MLBTV Game of the day, so we have that going for us. Which is nice.
