The A's play the Giants in today's Cactus League action.

I've complained a lot recently about how Spring Training games are boring because they don't count, the stats and results are misleading, and they often turn into Minor League blowouts. Well, that isn't the case today. It's always fun to watch the A's play the Giants. Heck, I'd straight up watch the River Cats vs the Grizzlies in January (note: this will never happen because bears hibernate during the winter). Anyway, a Spring Training game against the Giants is even more fun than a regular season game against the Mariners.

You may notice that I used the word "watch" in the above paragraph. That's because this game is on TV. You can find it on CSNBA. It will also be on the radio, at 95.7 FM.

Of note: Tommy Milone is hitting today. Milone is a good hitter, so that's actually going to be interesting to watch. My only regret is that Nakajima isn't playing, because I'd like to see him play with my own eyes again.

Go A's! FTG!
