Open Thread: Game 114 - A's @ Rays

David Price and his 9-10 record take the hill to have Trevor Cahill and his 9-10 record. But alas, all 9-10 records are not created equally. Price owns a 3.77 ERA and sharp 3.37 FIP, while accumulating 8.5 K/9, 2.0 BB/9 and 1.0 HR/9. Cahill on the other hand has a slightly sloppier 3.91 ERA and much sloppier 4.04 FIP, while throwing 6.7 K/9, 3.9 BB/9 and allowing 0.8 HR/9. Which 9-10 pitcher wins this battle? We must wait to find out. A's have a bunch of reserve players in today, and virtually no bench (Coco Crisp and Conor Jackson are out nursing different ailments). Hat tip to Flashfire, Craig Breslow is "knot" available either. Lineups featuring Adam Rosales, best first baseman in the American League, below:
