Two things of note here:

1) The Game is suppose to be on MLB Network tonight

2) The Tigers have given up 34 runs in the last two games against the Twins and they still have to play the second game of a double header tonight.

I'd almost like to see Gomes sit for moss or Vogt. He hasn't done much.

Now, I've got a hat in hand ready to eat, Gomes.

Edit - auto-in-correct

The Detroit bullpen has thrown 309 pitches in 15.1 innings in the last 24 hours, and they have another game tonight.

Looking at MLB Net's schedule ( as provided by directv), it indicates game will be joined an hour after it starts and it indicates it will be either A's/Angels or Kansas City/Rangers.  Doesn't affect those of us who receive csnca, however.  Anyway, if you're outside of the Bay Area's telecast, you might want to double check on your game  .... ie: which one is it and whether it indeed is joined an hour after the start.  If you have MLB extra innings, you should be able to get the full game. Game starts at 6 pm  PDT.

Looks like Melvin is going back to the platoon ways of the past, right or wrong. Moss has a better batting average vs. LHP this year by quite a bit, but he sits for the second straight game. Perhaps more related to the fact that he's not hitting much at all. Reddick was hitting pretty well and he sits for a second straight game. But if A's can duplicate last night's performance at the plate, I'll be happy to keep the same lineup out there.

Error on Freiman in the first. Swear if not the lack of hitting the horrible defense we have seen this season is going to doom us

Agree. He needs more salads and less fatty food in his diet.

A's look great tonight. This series (and Richards injury) are the beginning of the Halo slide. Mariners worry me much much more. Tigers look pathetic.

Why does CJ Wilson have a national head and shoulders commercial? Baseball needs stars yet the 150th best SP gets his own national commercial? Is it because of his str8 edge bible thumping stuff? He doesn't even have the best hair on the Angels staff.

I love Lester's demeanor out there. Wish he could be a long term Athletic. I suppose a ring will be enough. He reminds me of Stew and Huddy out there. Bad ass competitiveness.
