Today's opening day starting line-up blast from the past. We continue our series for the baseball season of 1988. Winning the American league West and the pennant would be the Oakland A's. The A's win a MLB best 104 games, under skipper, Tony LaRussa. They knock off the Boston Red Sox in 4 straight in the ALCS, but fall to the Dodgers in 5 games in the fall classic. The A's draw 2.297 million, which is good for 7th in the American League. Leading the A's in homeruns (42) and rbis (124), would be outfielder Jose Canseco. He also leads the team in steals with 40. Dave Stewart is the ace with 21 wins. Closing the door would be the future Hall of Famer, Dennis Eckersley with 45 saves. The A's open the season in front of 45, 333, against Mark Langston and Seattle Mariners. They get 8 1/3 innings of 2 hit 1 run baseball from Dave Stewart. They knock off the M's 4-1 Tony Phillips -2B Carney Lansford-3B Jose Canseco-RF Mark McGwire-1B Dave Parker-LF Dave Henderson-CF Don Baylor-DH Terry Steinbach-C Walt Weiss-SS
