appy Friday and welcome to another Friday night drinking thread in the 2017 A's season! I'll be your host, baseballgirl, somewhat remotely, as I am at a Single-A baseball game tonight in the middle of nowhere. If I don't return tonight, I've been kidnapped, so please send help. Although I'm not sure this A team can play any worse than our actual A's team, who squandered two absolutely phenomenal pitching performances this week; one by Hahn, one by Graveman (who also turned the play of the year so far in the field; if you didn't see it, go do that now) and managed to lose both games.
But, as they say, today is another day, and another series in fact, as the A's take on the Houston Astros behind Jharel Cotton, who is coming off his worse start of the season.
Here are your lineups:
|OAKLAND A'S||HOUSTON ASTROS|
|Jaff Decker - CF||George Springer - CF|
|Matt Joyce - RF||Josh Reddick - RF|
|Jed Lowrie - 2B||Jose Altuve - 2B|
|Khris Davis - LF||Carlos Correa - SS|
|Yonder Alonso - 1B||Carlos Beltran - DH|
|Ryon Healy - DH||Yulieski Gurriel - 1B|
|Stephen Vogt - C||Evan Gattis - C|
|Trevor Plouffe - 3B||Alex Bregman - 3B|
|Adam Rosales - SS||Norichika Aoki - LF|
|Jharel Cotton - RHP||Charlie Morton - RHP|
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
