For now, the A's will let Mike Sweeney and Thomas co-exist on the roster. Hard to understand how long that can last. But for now, to make roster room, Travis Buck was placed on the 15-day DL; Eric Chavez was transferred to the 60-day DL.
Meanwhile, I'll be at the game today. Will Thomas be in the lineup? I have an extra ticket, if anyone wants to go. Email me by 11:30am if you want it.
