Greetings from Oakland, California.

There's a fairly important game going on at Coliseum on Tuesday night, as the Oakland A's are looking to stave off elimination in Game 3 of their ALDS matchup against the Detroit Tigers. One more loss will end their season, and that would be quite the anticlimactic bummer after what they went through in the regular season.

On the flip-side, one more win will send the Tigers to the ALCS for the second straight year. With Anibal Sanchez—he of the 2.43 September ERA—on the mound in Game 3, the Tigers have to like their chances.

I'm lucky enough to be taking in Game 3 of the ALDS between the Tigers and A's from the press box among other knights of the keyboard. It's kind of like taking in a game from a luxury box, except with more laptops.

It crossed my mind to do a live blog of the game, but a live chat seems like a better idea. If you have questions you want to ask about the Tigers vs. A's game, you can leave them in the comments section below or you can send them to me via Twitter.

If you have questions about any other baseball topics, by all means feel free to ask them. We can talk about the other playoff series in action, and I'm down to answer some early Hot Stove questions if you have those as well.

Basically, whatever you want to ask, I'm all ears.
