Daily Link Dump (2 Aug 05) - Experiment

Hi everybody.  One thing I've noticed is that ANers love to share articles and clippings that mention the A's, however tangentially, and that these articles are being produced both by traditional media outlets (ESPN, SFGate) and by alternative baseball news outlets (Hardball Times, SBNation).

I thought today we could try a little experiment and, if it works, maybe make it a daily part of our AN routine - a Daily Link Dump.

The idea is that we can all share links to articles and websites in one diary without having to wade through several diaries, open threads, etc.  You can leave it with or without analysis, since each item will be a comment in this diary ran than a diary unto itself.

I'll get it started:

http://prosportsdaily.com/mlb/athletics/ - Links to local papers, both Bay Area and away (in this case, Minnesota).  Even the Orange County Register is getting in on A's bandwagon act. (For registration-required sites, use http://www.bugmenot.com)

http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/article/in-good-standings/ - Interesting graph at Hardball Times this morning detailing the A's near-rise to the top of the West.

So, AN, drop of your links here, with or without analysis, as you find them on the web today.  If this experiment is successful, maybe we could make it regular.
