Happy (Good) Friday, and welcome to the second edition of the Friday night drinking thread; this one kicking off a glorious day/night/weekend in the Bay Area, as the A's welcome in the Astros in a tarp-less Coliseum. Tonight's pitching match-up is a doozy; Kendall Graveman will test his smoking-hot start against the Astros' best, as Dallas Keuchel takes the mound for the Astros.
Things are looking up for the A's this season, and if the first 10 games are to be believed, this season could be a lot more fun than the last two. Here's to hoping.
The A's have rolled out the left-handed lineup tonight; it looks a little thin in the bottom half, but as they say, that's why the games are played. A's/Astros. Coming up next.
Here are your lineups:
|HOUSTON ASTROS||OAKLAND A'S|
