The A's play the Padres today on MLB Network. That's a TV station! But first, Oakland made some cuts yesterday:
...and new international celebrity Arnold Leon.
Those players are all headed to minor-league camp, but we already knew that none of them would make the club out of spring (or at all in 2013). All this means is that the 7th-9th innings of these spring games just got a whole lot less interesting.
Here are the lineups for today:
Chris Young - CF
John Jaso - DH
Josh Reddick - RF
Brandon Moss - 1B
Seth Smith - LF
Josh Donaldson - 3B
Hiro Nakajima - SS
Derek Norris - C
Andy Parrino - 2B
Jarrod Parker (starting)
All that matters is that Travis Buck is hitting 7th and playing left field, and Tyson Ross is the starting pitcher. Yep, the Padres should be pretty awesome this year.
