ATHLETICS PROBABLE:
        REDS PROBABLE:
Chad Gaudin (6-1, 2.85)          Homer Bailey (1-0, 5.73)

Game two of the West Coast death trap.  Looks like Oakland is chock full of good starting pitching just like the Angels.  Hopefully Homer can come out strong tonight and give us 7 innings against a weaker offense than he's previous faced.

From our own bobestes:

By the way, Baseball Reference keeps getting better and better.  They now have a game preview page for each game that day.  You can view the preview for the Reds and A's here: http://www.baseball-reference.com/previews/2007/OAK200706190.shtml

It's a little cluttered, but it's got a lot of information packed into a small space, including batter vs. pitcher matchups and various splits on the season.  I like it, and I thought you might too.

Here's the lineup:
Hatteberg dh
Phillips 2b
Griffey rf
Dunn lf
Conine 1b
Encarnacion 3b
Hamilton cf
Gonzalez ss
Valentin c
