THREE Questions:

  • Ervin Santana found his magic mouthguard to get him back on track, what trinket can we give Joe Saunders to snap him out of his funk?  I’m thinking he needs a nose ring, no?
  • Is it a coincidence that when the Angels had a middle infield combo of Orlando Cabrera and Adam Kennedy they missed the playoffs and now the A’s have that same combo and are dead last in the AL West?
  • When the A’s get their new stadium will it have a capacity of 7,000 so they can actually have some sellouts for a change?

TWO Predictions:

  • Kendry Morales’ hitting streak will survive the weekend.
  • My patience for Robb Quinlan as the starting leftfielder will not survive the weekend.

ONE Wish:

  • I wish for the Angels to pull off the four-game sweep.  Even though Oakland blows this year, they are still the Angels’ most-hated rivals in my eyes and I will never get tired of watching the Angels beat them down.

ZERO Tolerance for… anymore of Justin Speier pitching with a lead and by pitching with a lead I mean blowing a lead.
