The A's have won 7 of 9, but that was against Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Cleveland. Now the New York Yankees come calling, but the A's can't complain about the pitching matchups. Oakland will miss All-Star Philip Hughes and long-time A's killer Andy Pettite. It's Ben Sheets vs. Javier Vasquez Monday, then the A's put one of the league's hottest pitchers, Trevor Cahill, up against Yankees' ace C.C. Sabathia Tuesday, and on Wednesday Gio Gonzalez faces off with A.J. Burnett who, while New York's #2 starter in name, has probably been their worst pitcher overall.
