Oakland A's v. Seattle Mariners, MLB Preview: Lineups Set for Opening Day Matchup

Opening Day is finally here for the Oakland A’s, and what a better way to start then on a beautiful evening at Oakland Coliseum against their AL West rivals the Seattle Mariners. And as it usually goes, both teams will have their aces on the mound in an attempt to start their 2011 campaign on the right foot. Last year’s AL Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez will be taking on the A’s Trevor Cahill which seems to mean their might not be much offense tonight for either team.

CF Coco Crisp
1B Daric Barton
RF David DeJesus
LF Josh Willingham
DH Hideki Matsui
