Crisp sits out due to bruised foot

Coco Crisp, a key component of the Oakland Athletics' playoff-contending lineup, missed Tuesday night's game at Cleveland due to a bruised right foot.

The Oakland Athletics selling tickets on Groupon

The Oakland Athletics are having a fantastic year that came completely out of nowhere. They're tied for the lead in the top spot in the AL Wild Card race with another miracle team (the Baltimore Orioles), and are half a game ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays in those standings. The A's are even within spitting distance of the AL West title, just 5.5 games back of the Texas...

Pitcher Profile: Brett Anderson and the Tommy John Cure

With a young career riddled with injuries, it was tough for A’s fans to see Brett Anderson endure a Tommy John reconstruction surgery, adding further doubt to what kind of career Anderson could put together. There is virtually no question that, when healthy, Anderson can be a top-of-the-rotation starter. With decent K rates and a 2010 season with a 2.80 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, there...

Brett Anderson Ascends Via Descent

“It’s his second start and he looks like he’s in midseason form!” An exasperated Matt Underwood of SportsTime Ohio let out the preceding utterance after Brett Anderson dropped a 78 MPH curveball in for a strike on Cleveland’s Brent Lillibridge with a 1-1 count in the bottom of the third inning Monday. Even by that point it had become a familiar sight for Underwood and...
