Found April 26, 2013 on Sportress of Blogitude:
On Thursday night at Coliseum, Oakland A’s outfielder Coco Crisp took the field sporting a hairstyle he first broke out during the 2011 season that is as unique and outstanding as his name. Yep, Coco Crisp brought back his afro. It is the first time this season that Crips has rocked the ‘fro, so the question is: Did it have any impact on how he played? Did the rocking ‘do make him play better? According to the box score from Oakland’s 10-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, Crisp went 1-5 at the plate, leaving five men on base, four of those players being in scoring position. Huh. Not too good. Maybe he has to give the afro some time to reassert itself. You can’t rush afros, kids. Whatever that means. But did the return of the ‘fro compel Crisp to do the Bernie Lean? That’s what I want to know. [Cut4] The post Coco Crisp brings back his afro and it remains as majestic as ever (photo) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

Top AAA Hitters

Let's talk about the catchers on this list.  Stephen Vogt has been destroying minor league pitching for years now but the Athletics have "MLB Ready" catchers on the roster.  If he ever gets traded to a team that needs a power hitting catcher that doesn't strike out, he could prove very valuable both in real baseball and fantasy baseball.  Wait, doesn't every... thinks you should already know your All-Star ballot has released it’s All Star ballot, and if you have an official MLB account you received an email today with a suggestive image of who you should vote for. For the most part, all of the guys pictured above will be in the midsummer’s classic. But there are a few sneaky characters in that shot, one particularly sneaky dread-locked man. Are you telling me that in two calendar...
