…before the season begins, when our beloved boys of the WC orange and black take to the stadium out in the desert. There will be splashing in the outfield, where the DBags, so insecure that the fans would be content with mere baseball, installed a kidney shaped pool and bar. (They should really swap that thing with the LA Angels, who have leftovers from Big Mountain Railroad in their outfield. The rust colored fake rocks look more AZ-ish).
The starting pitching and lineup are all set, and things have been coming together quite nicely. There are some pieces missing, which lend to the late spring-training drama. Will it be Kontos or Machi? Is Justin Maxwell going to be a sure thing? And will Matt Duffy get rewarded for an excellent spring training?
Whilst we await the answer, lettuce (hehe) not forget that the personal A’s fan World Series takes place during the end of the week. The Bay Bridge series in any form becomes unpalatable when Ray Fosse is at the mike, but let the cross bay folk have their fun. It’s a great chance to see all the high school stars in the A’s starting lineup before that big let down in the first round of post-season play. Amirite?
