Game 159, Athletics at Mariners

And down the stretch we come.

RHP Jason Windsor (who?) vs. RHP Gil Meche, 7:05pm. headline: “Meche to start perhaps last game with Mariners.” I’m willing to overlook the mediocre quality of said headline if it can be true. Please, let it be true.

CF Ichiro!
3B Beltre
C Johjima
LF Ibanez
1B Sexson
DH Broussard
SS Lopez
RF Snelling
SS Betancourt

Meanwhile, Oakland runs out the “Day after clinching” lineup:

CF Bocachica!
2B Scutaro
RF Kielty
LF Swisher
1B Johnson
C Melhuse
SS Jimenez
DH Brown
3B Perez

You’ve got two former M’s (Bocachica and Perez), plus the great D’Angelo Jimenez, who, having started the season in Texas, is making a run at playing for all four teams in the division by the end of next year.

Trivia Question (for which I don’t have an answer): Since the move to the current divisional alignment in 1995, has any player played for all four teams in AL West? I can think of one player who has spent time with three of four, but that’s it off the top of my head. Have at it.

    Putz not get another chance (See # 120) – Wht’s the chance of HARGROVE using him in a non-save situation on Sunday–to get some work in?
