Good evening from the lovely beach! I'm on vacation (and was sorely tempted to come to Oakland tonight), but pausing to bring you tonight's contest. In case you have been living under a rock, uber-recent-prospect Dan Straily will be starting the game; the hottest thing to hit Oakland since Yoenis Cespedes. If that wasn't news enough, Kurt Suzuki was traded this morning, Derek Norris was recalled, and since Seth Smith is now on the DL, Michael Taylor is back in Oakland.
The Jays will be starting Brent Cecil against the rookie Straily, and the A's will do their best to put a few runs on the board in support.
Here are your lineups:
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
