Conor Jackson remains out; Brandon McCarthy appears ready for Wednesday start

Slow pregame scene for the A’s today, so here’s the lineups and what little there is to report …

A’s: Weeks 2B, Crisp CF, Matsui LF, Willingham DH, DeJesus RF, Allen 1B, Pennington SS, Suzuki C, Sogard 3B; Gonzalez LHP.

Orioles: Reimold LF, Hardy SS, Markakis RF, Jones CF, Guerrero DH, Wieters C, Reynolds 1B, Andino 2B, Bell 3B; Hunter RHP.

–Conor Jackson is still out with a sore neck as expected. Manager Bob Melvin says he’s getting better, but no word on his projected return.

–Brandon McCarthy (right knee contusion) made it through his bullpen session fine, so he looks on target for his Wednesday start.

–Scott Sizemore gets a day off, with Eric Sogard playing third.

    I heard one of KRON 4’s anchors say how the Angels renovated their crap stadium successfully-well done. So,he asked why couldn’t Lew Wolff do that in Oakland?
    The answer is -he could. Put a dome and make it 80 f all summer if he wanted. He won’t because it’s all mostly cover to talk new stadiums while he and the Fishers are satisfied to continue to milk MLB’s revenue sharing welfare program for the filthy AND stinking rich.
    Now ya know.
