Duchscherer this weekend?

No player moves today. And the same lineup as yesterday, Friday and Saturday. What’s with all of this stability around the A’s these days?

Winning some ball games probably has something to do with it, as the A’s are a loose bunch these days.

And it’s sure sounding like Justin Duchscherer will be a part of that team very soon. A’s manager Bob Geren said the team right now is discussing what to do with Duchscherer and it’s possible something official will be announced after the game tonight or tomorrow. Geren the right-hander sounded positive when they spoke to each other last night.

Making the move all the more likely is that Dallas Braden won’t throw a side session until tomorrow at the earliest. He did some long toss today, though.

Lots of bright orange at Camden Yards today as it’s Brad Bergesen t-shirt night. Pleasanton’s own has had a nice season so far, but he won’t be back from the DL until next week.

The lineups:

A’s – Kennedy 3B, Davis CF, Hairston LF, Cust DH, Suzuki C, Everidge 1B, Sweeney RF, Ellis 2B, Pennington SS, Cahill P.

Orioles – Roberts 2B, Jones CF, Markakis RF, Huff 1B, Reimold LF, Scott DH, Mora 3B, Moeller C, Izturis SS, Hernandez P.
