Finally, the A's are about to get better as they won't be allowed to play for the next four days after today. But they have to bring their unique brand of fail to the ballpark one more time, hoping to avoid a four-game series sweep in a series they had to sweep.
Trevor Cahill, who might have the rare opportunity to start in back to back games (he could open the Angels series on Friday), gets the call against LHP Matt Harrison. With any luck, Jemile Weeks won't muff a grounder, bobble a base hit, give up on a foul pop-up, and lob a poor throw to 1B, in today's game. Speaking of 1B, welcome to the position Adam Rosales after Weeks not only killed the A's chances of winning with yesterday's 9th inning throw, he also killed Conor Jackson.
