Good evening and welcome to almost-baseball; the final tuneup before the regular season starts on Monday! I know plenty of you will be splitting time with the Warriors, and that's why two TV screens are a must in your house. I'll be glad to talk to your significant others or parents about this.
Anyhoo, you get the treat of seeing Scott Kazmir take the mound tonight against the Giants, while the A's face off against Jake Peavy. I like the A's lineup, but probably because Billy Burns is batting where the pitcher traditionally does, since the A's will be using the DH even in the NL park. The Giants not so much, as Peavy will hit for himself.
Let's do this.
Here are your lineups and your pitching matchups, brought to you by Baseball Press.
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
