Billy Butler, Eric Sogard, and Sam Fuld are all in the lineup at once. That is all.
Not quite all, as at least we get another look at living legend Danny Valencia against a righty. Dickey is no ordinary righty, but it's still good to see him in the lineup. The A's look to stop the red hot Blue Jays, winners of nine straight, who suddenly find them selves but a half game out of the division.
The story of today should be Aaron Brooks, who leaves the spacious confines of O.Co for the launching pad that is Toronto. This should be an excellent test for the young righty, looking to prove himself for 2016 and beyond. Let's go A's!
