Open Thread: Game 78 (A's at Phillies)

Tonight should be an interesting game. After yesterday's near no-no's by each team, each by relatively unknowns, today's match up features two of the more well known variety. Cahill takes on Hamels and I, for one, am hoping for more offense this time around... on our side at least.

The A's are back to home in their original roots. One can only imagine what would have happened if the A's had stayed in Philly, and it is interesting that since their departure, they have never really found a true home. With the A's future uncertain, and a poised move to San Jose (or Oblivion and Beyond), this weekend's series will hold a lot of value to each of the "hometown" fans.

As an aside, for those visiting Philly, do not forget to visit the Philadelphia Athletics Historical Society, which should be quite a treat!
