Somebody look at Josh Reddick. Please.  Swisher: Baseball or Faceball? For whatever it's worth: I think the Yankees should acquire Josh Reddick, shave him and waive him. The one-day shave and waive.

Teams across the majors pushed to extra innings

Josh Reddick rushed out of the ballpark, more eager than ever to get home from yet another extra-long work day. Extra innings, that is. And a lot of them. Who could blame Reddick for his swift departure? He had played the equivalent of a day-night doubleheader, minus the break in between. Oakland teammate Brandon Moss followed closely behind en route to the exit Thursday night...
COUNTING'S HARD

Umpire rings up A's batter after strike two

Your browser does not support iframes. In another inexcusable case of a major league umpire losing count of balls and strikes behind home plate, CB Bucknor accidentally rang up Oakland A's batter Seth Smith on strike two during extra innings of Thursday's marathon game at the O.co Coliseum. It happened in the bottom of the 11th as Bucknor made the emphatic "strike...

A Look Into Bartolo Colon's Success

Bartolo Colon has had surprising success this season in Oakland. (Photo credit) Remember in Little League when your team would face a pipsqueak on the mound who threw only fastballs right over the plate, but for some reason your entire team had trouble getting on base? Each hitter after the next would continue to increase the ferocity of their swing, while they continued to hit...

Athletics’ Josh Donaldson exits with sore hamstring

Oakland Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson exited last night’s marathon contest against the New York Yankees with soreness in his right hamstring, according to Jane Lee of MLB.com. The game lasted 18 innings, and Donaldson told reporters that he began experiencing discomfort in his hamstring during the 15th frame. He experienced the soreness while he was in the...

Otero called up from minors to help A's pitching

The Oakland Athletics have purchased the contract of pitcher Dan Otero from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday and optioned left-hander Hideki Okajima to the minors. The moves come one day after the A's needed to go deep in their bullpen in an 18-inning win over the New York Yankees. Otero was 1-0 with a 0.99 ERA with the River Cats and was 15 for 15 in save opportunities. The 28...

Young has 3 hits in Athletics' loss to Mariners

Chris Young kept working on his hitting even as his numbers fell. Getting a chance to bat in the leadoff spot seemed like a good time to put it all together. Young homered as part of a three-hit night, but it went for naught. Mike Zunino hit his first career home run, a tiebreaking solo shot in the seventh inning, and the Seattle Mariners held on for a 3-2 win over the Oakland Athletics...

A's sign first-round pick

The Oakland Athletics have agreed to terms with first-round pick Billy McKinney on a deal that includes a $1.8 million bonus. McKinney, the 24th player selected overall, took batting practice at the Oakland Coliseum before Friday night's game between the A's and Seattle Mariners. A center fielder at Plano West High School in Plano, Texas, McKinney batted .372 with four...

A's And M's Play Through The Stink In Oakland

((HT: CSN California/KGO-TV)) A sewage problem with the 47-year-old Oakland Coliseum caused a backup that made the A's and Mariners dress in the same clubhouse, made Mariners manager Eric Wedge hold his presser in the hall instead of a foot of water in his office, and this apparently happens even when the team is on the road. Too many people made trips to the bathroom during...

Athletics 10, Mariners 2

Bartolo Colon worked seven strong innings to win his sixth straight decision, Josh Reddick homered and matched a career high with four hits, and the Oakland Athletics avoided a sweep with a 10-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. Sean Smith and Brandon Moss each homered and drove in two runs for the Athletics, who moved three games ahead of Texas in the AL West - their...

The O.co stadium is full of crap... literally

So, Bud Selig, about that whole Oakland A's moving to Santa Clara thing. Any chance we might be able to speed up the process? No rush or anything, but you might want to know that the O.co Coliseum, where the A's currently play, is flooded with raw sewage. That seems kind of relevant, no? Yes, it is apparently an ugly sight at O.co right now as both the A's and the...

Recap: Athletics Lose 3-2 to Mariners, “It’s time for some other guys to shine.”

Chris Young’s sixth home run of the season brought the Athletics within one run, but it wasn’t enough as Oakland lost to the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Friday night. Young went 3-for-3 on the night, hitting a double in addition to his eighth-inning home run. He had gone 4-for-49 (.082) in his last 14 games. A’s skipper Bob Melvin acknowledged the center fielder’s successful...

Oakland Athletics Brandon Moss Runs Over Yankees Chris Stewart

With the game on the line in the 15th inning between the Oakland Athletics and the New York Yankees, Brandon Moss barrelled down on Yankees catcher Chris Stewart for a major league collision at home plate. Stewart recorded the game saving out but appeared disoriented afterwards thinking the inning was over with only two out. The post Oakland Athletics Brandon Moss Runs Over Yankees...

Athletics-Rangers Preview

The Oakland Athletics have taken control of the AL West in part because of the Texas Rangers' struggles on their longest homestand of the season. The A's will try to add to those woes while padding their advantage in a four-game series that begins Monday night. Oakland trailed by one game in the division after Texas won the opener of an 11-game homestand last Monday. The...
