Podcast: Strugglin' A's

Josh Reddick is 6-for-19 since shaving his beard before Saturday's game. - J. Meric

Alex Hall goes on the Phil Naessens Show to talk A's baseball.

In today's episode, we discuss the struggles of Brett Anderson, the acquisition of Casper Wells, the return of Adam Rosales, and the (hopeful) resurgence of Jarrod Parker (which reversed itself last night). We also preach patience with Josh Reddick, which was justified last night as he swung the bat well.

I did make two errors in this episode. First, I failed to correct Phil when he suggested that Nate Freiman could be sent to AAA without losing him, and second, I incorrectly guessed Reddick's age (Phil suggested 23 and I guessed 24, but he's really 26...they grow up so fast!).

Thanks for listening, and leave your feedback in the comments!
