Yes, the game post picture is a mite creepy. But then again, it is a 10:00 pm EST game, and creepiness is thematically apt. Whenever the Tigers play at Oakland, there are three unavoidable questions that come to mind: 1) Will anyone stay up late enough to watch? 2) Who named O.co Coliseum, and how much would it cost to rename it? And what civil or criminal remedies are available? and 3) The team name. I mean, Athletics is easy to work with, but A’s? It seem so…possessive. And what would the possessive of A’s be? A’s's? As in the A’s's record so far is best in the American League? And it is. Against all odds, the A’s seem to be doing it again. Stat of the Day:  Teams who rest two .400 hitters on a West Coast trip opener win 66.6% of the games on the road trip. Player of the Pre-game: Don Kelly. With the fearsome Ramone Santiago hitting behind him finally Kelly will get some good pitches to hit. And having Kelly on base in front of him will clearly get Santiago “going.” Today’s Clearly-Hunter-And-Infante-Need-A-Rest-From-The-Long-Plane-Trip Lineup: Jackson, CF Dirks, LF Cabrera, 3B Fielder, 1B Martinez, DH Avila, C Peralta, SS Kelly, RF Santiago, 2B
