I should have known better than to get excited about Opening Day. The A's and Yankees conspired to ruin my goddamn night. Not only does Barry Zito suck, not only does Kirk Saarloos suck, not only does Brad Halsey suck, but Bobby Crosby is hurt. Again. The guys on YES said it's his finger, so hopefully it's not serious. On the other hand, Adam Eaton's finger is keeping him out for 2-3 months, so I'll just assume the worst and figure the A's are stuck with Antonio Perez at short for the rest of the year.

What a disgusting, disgraceful way to start the season. The A's will lose this game worse than the Reds lost theirs. That's shameful.
