The 29-year old who owns a 5.99 earned run average was doing decent in the strike out department for Sacramento, striking out more than one per inning in three starts.

Oakland Athletics Option Pitcher Evan Scribner

MLB News: The Oakland Athletics optioned pitcher Evan Scribner to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday. While he did get shelled in his last appearance against the Tampa Bay Rays, giving up 4 earned runs in 3.0 innings pitched, truth be told, his season wasn’t really going that bad before it, allowing 2 earned runs in 7 innings. This is kind of a head scratching move as he was replaced...

Josh Reddick Meets Saddest Man Alive

And we may not stop there, he could be in the running for saddest man to have ever lived. According to Reddick's tweet last night, he met Lil Hogan here at Hogan's Beach, which is a Hulk Hogan-themed bar/restaurant in the Tampa area. Reddick and the Athletics are in town this weekend for a series with the Rays. Back to our friend here, though. Here are our options: He is...

Josh Reddick Shaves Beard, After Most Likely Losing Bet To WWE’s Daniel Bryan

  Let us all let out a resounding ‘Hallelujah!’ Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick has finally shaved off his massive beard. The beard from Hell began as part of a twitter bet with WWE’s Daniel Bryan. The deal was that both Reddick and Bryan would grow out their beards and by year’s end fans would vote on who had the better beard, and the loser would shave off theirs...

Josh Reddick shaved his beard (Photo)

You could probably call off that beard competition between Josh Reddick and WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan. Reddick has been in a public “beard off” with the WWE star since March. But, in the midst of the 2-for-22 slump, the outfielder cleaned up his look on Saturday, as he has done in the past when struggling, and as as a result no longer looks like a smelly homeless person: For...

Josh Reddick Cuts Hair, Trims Beard, Likely Loses Bet to WWE’s Daniel Bryan

Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick had a beard-growing contest with WWE superstar Daniel Bryan. By year’s end, fans would vote on the better beard, and whoever “lost” would have to shave their facial hair off. It appears that Reddick has already accepted defeat at the expense of some old fashioned superstition. Reddick came to the ballpark on Saturday with a haircut...

Josh Reddick Advocates Slow Torture of Boston Marathon Suspect then Apologizes (sort of)

Josh Reddick, right fielder for the Oakland Athletics and former Boston Red Sox prospect, has fallen victim to the allure of social media. Like many before him and likely many after him he has tweeted something that he possibly could have/should have thought out a little more first. It's a little early in the season to grow the rally/playoff beard Josh. Early Friday...

Rays CF Desmond Jennings turns rare unassisted double play at first base (Video)

A bit of history happened during Saturday’s contest between the A’s and Rays. It occurred after Eric Sogard, inexplicably thinking the ball would drop (yes, he had his glasses on), ran without hesitation from first to third on a nonthreatening fly to center field with one out. Bad news for the A’s; good news for the Rays and center fielder Desmond Jennings, whom the baserunning...
