Open thread for AL Wild Card Game: A's @ Royals

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

If you are watching the game tonight and want to chat, here is the place.

I guess I'm sort of cheering for the A's.

Lester has a 6-4 record with a 2.35 ERA in 11 games with the A's, with 16 walks and 71 strikeouts in 76.2 innings after being traded to Oakland by the Red Sox.

James Shields has a 14-8 with a 3.21 ERA in 34 starts with the Royals, with 44 walks and 180 strikeouts in 227 innings.
