Rajai gets nod tonight in center

The Internet access is a little spotty in the press box right now, so I’m pounding out my first blog via blackberry. And for some apparent reason, I thought you would find that interesting. …

Anyway, Ryan Sweeney is active but not in tonight’s lineup with lefty Randy Wolf throwing for LA. The Padres have lefty Wade LeBlanc going tomorrow, and Geren said he hadn’t decided yet if Sweeney would start tomorrow or Rajai Da

Geren said Nomar Garciaparra is probably still a week or two away from being able to start in the field. Once the A’s return to playing in American League parks, Geren could DH Garciaparra and keep playing Jack Cust in right field. He said he didn’t know how he would handle the DH spot yet.

Ill leave you with the lineups now, as my fingers are getting exhausted from blackberry blogging.

    Another fine example of Geren’s management style.

    From Susan Slusser: I asked Geren before the game about Orlando Cabrera, because he hasn’t looked quite as sharp to me as he usually does defensively. Some scouts I just talked to were saying the same thing, and speculating that maybe he’s a little tired. Geren said Cabrera looks fine to him, just like always.

    ugh…is Geren even watching the same game as the rest of us?
