The Oakland A's dugout is full of crap, and that's not just a figure of speech. With the Minnestoa Twins in town on Saturday, a few inches of raw sewage backed up into the visitors' dugout before the third game of a four-game series. Twins closer Glen Perkins observed what he described as "potential sewage," and sent out a photo on Twitter. Visitor dugout in Oakland. Probably 4" of standing water/potential sewage. pic.twitter.com/kAZGQx0cfr -- Glen Perkins (@glen_perkins) September 21, 2013 There's theories. Bigger crowds = inherently more people taking twosies = potential problems again for A's and their garbage stadium? http://t.co/4z6Txu8Avn -- Peter Woodburn (@wernies) September 18, 2013 There's superstition. I'm not a big fan of the sewage either, but the A's are 2-0 on days it happens... -- Decatholac Mango (@Sniff009) September 18, 2013 But mostly, there's jokes. @susanslusser -- Will MLB please test sewage for clues on what makes the A's a superior ball club despite stadium issues? -- Chris Faile (@ChrisFaile) September 21, 2013 @susanslusser @Buster_ESPN This is very strange. Don't the A's usually wait 'til the ALDS before we see raw sewage on the field? -- WTF Jones (@WTFJones) September 21, 2013 There is no truth to the rumor that the Oakland A's are going to go swimming in the sewage after they clinch the AL West. -- Lars (@LarsTheWanderer) September 21, 2013 And then were was this, which more or less sums it up. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAA SEWAGE IN THE A'S DUGOUT AT O.CO LMAO TROLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL *dying -- Grayson's Mom (@christinaderr) September 18, 2013
