Looks like one of those "shutout til the 8th inning" type lineups....hope I'm wrong.

Injuries are playing a huge role in the pennant races, for the A's and for many other teams.

Perhaps the A's depth and flexibility will prove to be critical, but it's hard to see key contributors unable to play, or playing so hurt it hinders production.

Not a great fan of that lineup. Reminds me of a lineup that a team puts out after winning the first two of a three games series, giving some playing time to people who normally don't get it, and if we get a win that will be a bonus.

I guess Donaldson, Moss and Norris will be the middle of our lineup from here out.

That might end up being the case for both teams.  Guthrie was strong last time against the A's, and is coming off a better start against the Dbacks.  I'd like to see if the A's make any sort of an adjustment against him this team, his stuff didn't seem overwhelming last week.

Per Slusser: Normal day off for Coco, available off the bench. Lowrie has a fractured finger. Wants to play through it. No DL at this time

Kudos to Lowrie.  Says he feels some pain but wants to play through with it.  Bad  timing losing Punto, as well.  I'm not a fan of calling Parrino up, if that's the way they go eventually.  I'd much rather have Callaspo over there.  He is a huge streak hitter; but I think he's due to have one of his hitting streaks.  Thinking positive, here.

The whole team is overdue.  Their collective BABIP this month has been very low.  The power seems to have been turned off a bit too, some because of the Cespedes trade, but also the Moss struggles.  I'd like to see Blanks come up soon, and possibly provide a spark.

Keep them runs coming. Gotta be demoralizing for KC down by 3 with lester on the mound.

Moss bunt! Outstanding.
Poor sonny has gotta be wondering why he didn't get a little of today's hitting.

Great to see moss and vogt having good at bats. Quite a turn around from the last time the team faced Guthrie.

Is anyone else hearing an intermittent chirping sound on the A's TV broadcast?
