Open Thread: Game 97 (Oakland Athletics at Detroit Tigers)

Ninety seven already? Wow.

Anyway, the A's are in Detroit today, to kick off a mini two-game set. Guillermo Moscoso (3-4, 2.16 ERA, ∞ FIP) is back up in Oakland (Jerry Blevins was "DFA'd", yet he's still on the 40-man. No idea what that's all about.), facing Rick Porcello (8-6, 4.78 ERA). Porcello hasn't quite been able to recapture the magic of his age-20 season in 2009, so hopefully he won't be too strong of an opponent.

First pitch is at 4:05 Pacific.

Oakland Lineup:

2B Weeks
LF Sweeney
CF Crisp
DH Matsui
3B Sizemore
RF DeJesus
1B Jackson
C Suzuki
SS Pennington
