Open Thread - A's vs Padres on MLB Network

Hey you guys! The A's game is on TV! But only if you get MLB Network.

Thearon W. Henderson

The A's play the Padres today on MLB Network. That's a TV station! But first, Oakland made some cuts yesterday:

Jesse Chavez
Andrew Werner
Michael Ynoa
Miles Head
Jefry Marte
Kyler Newby
Ryan Ortiz
Addison Russell
Beau Taylor
...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)
Garrett Olson
Travis Blackley
Evan Scribner
Fernando Rodriguez
Brian Gordon
James Simmons

San Diego

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.

Go A's!
