Washburn (4-7, 4.28) Loaiza (1-3, 6.39)
The Frank Thomas-less (DL, old age) A's have the sixth-worst OPS against lefties in baseball, and current players hold a career .217/.285/.377 batting line against Jarrod Washburn. Meanwhile, Esteban Loaiza has been ten shades of awful this year and just yesterday was arrested for driving under the influence of twenty-one million dollars' worth of alcohol. In other words, be glad you're at work and that this is radio-only, because when we lose, it's really going to suck hard.
LET'S GO MARINERS?
