Day of ASG Open Thread

Even if you didn't watch the derby, you gotta admit Fielder's kids are freakin' adorable

Missing baseball today? Hang out here to talk about the A's, bag on the HR Derby last night, or discuss whether Ryan Cook will be the designated extra-inning reliever.

Still need more? You can always look at the B-R ASG historical stats:

MIguel Tejada was the last A's player to record an ASG hit, let alone have more than one ASG PA. That 1975 AL team had 5 A's starters... they were definitely the Yankees of the time.

Mark Mulder and Vida Blue are the only Oakland A's to have recorded an ASG win. Dennis Eckersley has faced 12 total batters in the ASG, more than any Oakland pitcher save for Blue and Catfish Hunter.

It's a free-for-all, so please jump in! A new thread will appear shortly before the game itself.
