Spring Game Thread #33: Oakland Athletics at San Francisco Giants

After what has felt like an indeterminable Spring, the A's finally find themselves back in a big league ballpark, facing the San Francisco Giants no less; the team that got everything the A's wanted last season. Whether the A's will be settling any scores this season, especially early and without Josh Reddick and Coco Crisp, has yet to be determined.

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.
