Found July 27, 2012 on Unathletic:

In case you haven’t noticed, the Oakland A’s are hot right now. Real hot. Whenever Oakland plays well you have to give them some credit because of their financial handicap. Part of getting hot is playing good defense. While they’ve gotten good pitching, defense has been solid too. Part of that good defensive play has been Josh Reddick’s Spiderman impression this week. Well done.


Josh Reddick climbs fence for sick ‘Spiderman’ catch (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. A’s right fielder Josh Reddick has attracted plenty of attention with his powerful bat this season, but he’s also brought the leather on plenty of occasions. In the bottom of the 2nd of Oakland’s 16-0 shellacking of Toronto on Wednesday, Reddick climbed the fence in right field and hung off it to make a “Spiderman” catch that robbed...

Josh Reddick makes Spiderman-like catch

Your browser does not support iframes. Oakland Athletics right fielder Josho Reddick is having a fantastic year offensively, but tonight in Toronto, he added some defensive mojo to his resume. In the bottom of the second, Blue Jays outfielder Travis Snider hit a ball deep to right center, and Reddick went up for the catch. Instead of just settling under it or leaping like most players...

Top Play: Josh Reddick climbs wall for grab

Josh Reddick did his best spiderman impression on Wednesday night against the Blue Jays, scaling the wall to rob the Blue Jays of extra bases. Although the game was already out of reach with Oakland up 9-0 in just the second inning, the spectacular play earned the top play award for the night. The Athletics have won nine of their last ten games and have tied the Angels for second...

Josh Reddick Made A Bad Judgement Look Good (Video)

It's not everyday you miss judge a ball and it looks better than if you would have judged it correctly.  Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick jumped up to rob a home run ball last night against the Blue Jays and hung on the wall for a couple seconds before the ball got there.  Technically he probably could have just stood on the warning track, but hey then we wouldn'...

A’s OF Josh Reddick climbed the wall like Spider-man to make this catch, probably didn’t have to

The Oakland A’s absolutely destroyed the Toronto Blue Jays last night 16-o (worst home shutout loss in team history), and by the second inning the game was such a laugher that Oakland rightfielder Josh Reddick decided to spice things up a bit by climbing the outfield wall, a la Spider-Man, to rob the Jays Travis Snider of extra bases. Sure it made the catch look impressive as all...

A's Outfielder Josh Reddick makes Spiderman-like catch

Sharapova's Thigh sends along A's Outfielder Josh Reddick making a Spider-man like catch. Your browser does not support iframes. It is not exactly this or even this but...that's pretty good. Why... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

A’s Josh Reddick makes unnecessary Spiderman catch

As dumb as it might sound, Major League outfielders will dive when they don’t have to, embellish a play by running further than necessary after making a catch or even climbing and hanging from the outfield fence.  It’s all about the (cue SportsCenter theme) “dah nah nah, dah nah nah.” It was only 9-0 in the A’s 16-0 crushing of the Blue Jays when Josh Reddick decided to...

BP Unfiltered: Jerry Blevins, Non-Vulture by Sam Miller

On Friday night, Ryan Cook entered the game for the A's in the eighth. He allowed two inherited runners to score and one of his own, blew the lead, and got the final out of the inning. The A's then took the lead back in the ninth. Jerry Blevins replaced him and protected the lead. As you know, Ryan Cook would be credited with the victory. But  Cook was the rule...

A's hand Jays record shutout loss

Coco Crisp hit two home runs and Yoenis Cespedes had a pair of RBI doubles, leading A.J. Griffin and the Oakland Athletics over the Toronto Blue Jays 16-0 Wednesday night for their season-high seventh straight win. It was the most-lopsided shutout loss ever for Toronto. Things got so out of hand that the Blue Jays used catcher Jeff Mathis to pitch the ninth inning, and he gave up...

Athletics rally to beat Orioles

A back-and-forth duel that featured 31 hits and lasted four hours was decided by one final outburst by the Oakland Athletics. Jemile Weeks hit an RBI single to give Oakland the lead during a six-run ninth inning against All-Star closer Jim Johnson, and the Athletics beat the Baltimore Orioles 14-9 on Friday night. Thanks mostly to Johnson, the Orioles were 41-0 when leading after...

About Last Night...

Last night’s loss to the Oakland Athletics was understandable; however, it was inexcusable. With the Orioles in Wild Card contention, they gave away a game that should have won. We all know by now that the Orioles lost to the Athletics 14-9, despite two comebacks against perhaps the hottest team in baseball; alas, close Jim Johnson gave up six runs in the top of the ninth. Oakland...
