The Yankees are in town for a three-game series. Can the A's turn some heads in front of what will likely be their biggest home crowds of the year?
Oakland will likely see their biggest home crowds of the year over the weekend, which may consist of mostly dislocated (or merely deluded) Yankees fans. The A's are in second place in the American League West, which is more than the Yankees can say about their spot in their own division. The A's will try to raise some eyebrows (in a good way) as they try to take some games at home against the formidable Yankees.
