The A's find themselves fighting a 4 game losing streak against the Yankees (of the New York and Boston variety). Today's morning game features Cahill vs Beckett in a match for the ERA title (at least before Cahill's recent struggles).
The A's really need to get a grip, as the team's recent strength (pitching) has faltered recently, and the bullpen is struggling and tired from yesterday's game. All I can say is, if the offense remembers what they did yesterday and gives Cahill 6 runs, and Cahill remembers what life was like Pre-Yanks, we should be fine.
On a side note: Are we sure that Josh Beckett isn't an Athletic already? Good pitching numbers with a thousand injuries? Sounds all too familiar.
baseballgirl: Here are your lineups (thanks, BaseballPress). Ellis is batting fifth. No sign of Suzuki or Crisp. Good morning; Happy Weekend!
