The Simplicity of Josh Reddick’s Improvement

Not every breakout comes with a complicated story. Sometimes it’s super simple. Sometimes, as Josh Reddick put it, a player just comes to “a recognition.” For Reddick, it was recognition born of who he is. He became better by becoming more like himself. Look down at his numbers, and it seems as straight forward as […]

Reddick delivers A's first walk-off win of the season, gets pied

The Oakland Athletics' playoff runs from 2012-2014 were marked with exciting walk-off victories...but it took them until June 10th to pick up their first of 2015. In fact, they hadn't even had a last-at-bat victory yet this season until Josh Reddick strode to the plate in the bottom of the ninth against Texas Rangers reliever Keone Kela. Reddick's well-placed infield single plated...

Josh Reddick has best argument for why Michael Jordan is better than LeBron

Josh Reddick’s area of expertise may be baseball, but the Oakland A’s outfielder has officially put an end to one of the most polarizing basketball debates there is.

Oakland A’s continue to struggle on home turf

Returning from a long road trip in three different cities, the Oakland A’s returned to host the Boston Red Sox Monday night, for a three game home stand which would hopefully lead to a fresh start for the struggling team. However, home sweet home at the infamous O.Co coliseum was not the magic factor missing in their game strategy. Losing the series 1-3, the A’s remain in their...

The Oakland Athletics have made some head-scratching moves this offseason, most notably trading their star, Josh Donaldson, to the Toronto Blue Jays on Nov. 28.

WATCH: Josh Reddick makes incredible homer-robbing catch

Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick has made his share of great catches in the past, but in Wednesday's game against the Giants, he may have outdone himself. Michael Morse hit a fly ball to deep right field, and Reddick proceeded to scale the wall, hang on, reach far over the fence, and rob Morse of a home run. This catch was even better than his "Spiderman" catch in Toronto...
