No start time yet

We’re 45 minutes into this rain delay, and no concrete word on when the game might start. I’ll keep you updated. There is talk that 9 p.m. (6 p.m. West Coast) might be the magic time, but no confirmation for that.

Meanwhile, in the “That Just Ain’t Right” category, the Yankees’ JumboTron just showed a man and woman each wearing the same T-shirt. It had a big Yankee logo on the front and “Mazzaro” on the back. I know that Vin has a lot of fans here tonight, and I know they’re all probably Yankee fans at heart. But come on folks, choose a side …

    Joe,

    First take on Eric Patterson is His swing, an uppercut
    without much power at this level. He went to AAA and
    performed,but the swing He left with has returned. Eric
    does have speed and Ray Fosse has remarked that it does
    not appear that Eric Patterson has mastered the Art of
    putting the ball on the ground where His speed would
    serve Eric and the A’s.

    Joe,

    One other point, About the trade of Gallagher + for
    Scott Hariston, age 29 with lifetime average of .256
    and 134 RBI in 1,213 at bats. He arrives and Sweeney
    is sent to Right Field. Sweeney made most of the A’s
    Highlight catches during the first half of the season,
    and Now Hariston would take his place in Center Field.
    Scott Hariston did not appear to be an improvement in
    Center and now He quickly is sent to Left Field when the Hollidsay trade is made. There again He didn’t look comfortable. I hope that Scott works out, but at age 29 and a career.256 batting average, I don’t think
    that the A’s have a Star. Gallagher was the Key to the
    Harden trade…Hariston for Harden?
