Join us today for our Friday night drinking thread as Raul Alcantara makes his first start of the year for the A's. The A's offense will be facing off against a familiar face; A.J. Griffin, who will be making the start for the Rangers.

Happy Friday and welcome to the first Friday night thread of the year! I'm baseballgirl and I'll be your host for this Happy Hour special as we kick off the game right at 5:00PM. It's Raul Alcantara vs. A.J. Griffin tonight, as the A's come off a successful split with the Angels, that should have been 3 out of 4 (#stillbitter)

Baseball has been a welcome sight this Spring week. Even though last season was painful from the get-go, I found myself still incredibly fired up for a whole week of non-stop A's baseball, and as we head into the weekend.

Without further delay, here are your lineups:
