It's not who you play, it's when you play them.
The A's have won seven in a row. How many teams have the Twins played this year that were hot when we played them? It seems like every other team the Twins play is playing at the top of their games.
|2009 - Scott Baker||3-6||10||10||0||0||0||0||52.8||63||40||39||15||11||49||5.88||1.24|
Scott Baker is starting to figure it out mechanically. In the first several starts after an injury disrupted his rhythm going into the season, Baker is getting hitting his spots again and changing eye angles to get guys out. If he stays tall and mixes it up, he should do fine in the cool Oakland air against one of the worst hitting clubs in the league. And as Bert says, "with all the foul territory here in Oakland", he has an added advantage as a pop-up pitcher.
|2009 - Brett Anderson||3-5||10||10||0||0||0||0||54.1||63||40||30||10||15||31||4.97||1.44|
Matt Tolbert hitting second. Gardy just can't help himself.
