    You have Jimmy Dykes on the bench and at 3B. Is this by error or are there two Jimmy Dykes?

    Wow … 4 of 5 lefty starters. Rube will have plenty of days to chase fire trucks.

    I move Baker into starting at third … then consider having Bando or Chavez over Dykes for some pop off the bench.

    Great franchise history with the A’s

    Dykes belongs on the team. He has the 4th most hits and 6th most total bases in franchise history.
