Come on, people! I didn't intend to post this myself, but I have an addiction to the Link Dump. So. Here goes.
Apparently, our various ailing players are getting better. At least, Meyer and Crosby are. Refreshing!!
The A's commercials (scroll down) are back!!
In one, Nick Swisher is shown running hard to first base on the most routine of groundballs. When the camera pans wide, the viewer sees why Swisher is hustling; manager Ken Macha is standing near the batting cage with two menacing dogs ready to chase any lollygaggers.
Another classic features Blanton drawing uncomfortable looks from his teammates as he works out with a thigh master on the weight room floor.
Also in that article, Urban says that Richard the Lionheart is feeling better after a bout of food poisoning, but lost EIGHT pounds in TWO days!!
"I lost eight pounds in two days," he said. "It [stinks], because I worked my [tail] off putting weight on during the offseason, and I had finally got myself up to 196 [pounds] before this happened. Now I'm back to 188 and have to start building myself up all over again."
In case any of you didn't see it, here are the pictures from the A's photo day!
Okay. Commence dumping.
