Final day of May game thread 25

For the final time in the decade of the 2000’s, your Oakland Athletics take the field for a game in the month of May.  So far in May 2009 they are 10-18.  The 18 losses this month tie for the third-worst month of the decade (20 losses each in August 2008 and May 2005; the ...

Whatever. 25

A’s up 1-0 top 1st on a Suzuki GR2B. Buck DL’ed. Gray down. Petit and Cunningham up. Geren deathwatch in effect.

Oh, right … there’s a game 40
