Can Cahill solve his woes against Yanks?

The A’s try to make it two in a row in the Bronx, with Trevor Cahill opposing CC Sabathia. You know Cahill’s story against the Yankees. It ain’t pretty … He’s 0-4 with a 13.50 ERA in four career starts. Sabathia, a Vallejo native, has endured some struggles against the A’s over the years. But he’s 5-1 with a 2.48 ERA over his past seven starts vs. Oakland.

–Alex Rodriguez remains out of the Yankees’ lineup with a sprained left thumb, so that’s one big bat Cahill won’t have to worry about. No Eric Chavez today … Eduardo Nunez draws the start at third in A-Rod’s place.

The lineups:
A’s — Weeks 2B, Crisp CF, Matsui LF, Willingham DH, Allen 1B, Jackson RF, Suzuki C, Pennington SS, Sizemore 3B; Cahill RHP.

Yankees — Gardner LF, Jeter SS, Granderson CF, Teixeira 1B, Cano 2B, Swisher RF, Posada DH, Nunez 3B, Cervelli C; Sabathia LHP.

    Anybody notice Melvin was alive? If I had to guess, his disappearing act vs Texas,and the talk?-He heard it.
    95.7 says they worry Beane will Leave the A’s. Who would hire him AND give him a part ownership? He stayed here for that. Being a winning GM in Boston didnt appeallike making the bigger dough strangling the A’s payroll.
    95.7 better hire more who know local sports.
