Gameday Thread: A's at O's, 08/28

     Danny Haren, RH                John Maine, RH
     (10-10, 4.04)                  (1-0, 1.50)

Game time is 1:35 on WJZ and FSN Bay Area.

The A's are back to playing like a machine and the O's can't hit their way out of a wet paper bag.

This late season dive stuff is clearly familiar territory for O's fans. I am watching the games, but talking about them is pointless. I think we're all in the same boat right now, or at least very similar boats. Maybe yours has a motor.

I really figured Danny Haren might crap out some around 170 innings this year, but he's at 173.2 and still pitching pretty well. Doesn't look like he's gonna take a big nosedive.

Maine is someone I'm still interested in seeing this year, though, so I'm looking forward to this one. DuBose has proven himself to still be Eric DuBose after yesterday's start, however. The reasons to watch get shorter and shorter. The playoffs and offseason cannot come soon enough as far as I'm concerned.
