Happy Friday and welcome to what will no doubt be the Friday night drinking thread. To put it bluntly, the Orioles have struggled so far in the first month of the season, winning just eight games. The A’s are looking to get back to .500 tonight with a win behind the well-rested Daniel Mengden; he lasted just 2 1⁄3 innings in his last start.
Meanwhile, the A’s will take a crack at Andrew Cashner. All three Matt’s are in the lineup tonight; let’s hope for a Matt trick.
