(What is this?)

I'm not going to ruin what's been a terrific night by trying to write about another predictably awful game I didn't watch. That's not laziness, that's me looking out for my own best interests. Besides, a handy rule of thumb is that, if Deanna can't think of a recap, the game was unrecappable. Seriously, the only difference between this game against Oakland and all the previous ones is that this time the A's defense gave us a few runs. I can't remember the last time I was this thankful for a series to be over.

Giants in town tomorrow, with Noah Lowry opposing Felix at 7:05pm PDT. The rotation shake-up (Felix and Gil swapped places) removes the possibility of a Schmidt/Hernandez afternoon duel in two days, but that game was going to be blacked out on anyway, so at least this way I won't feel like I'm missing out on very much come Saturday.
