DLD 6/13/13: Day Game Edition

Ezra Shaw

Links before the A's take on the Yankees for the last time this season.

Mariano Rivera, all-around good guy.

Dave Cameron takes a look at how good the A's have been over the past calendar year. Unlike the Bleacher Report article from a few days ago about the A's (the one that said Chris Young is batting five home runs), this one is not concentrated crap. It's quite well-written, in fact.

Sean Doolittle has pitched 49 full counts in his career. Last night was the first time he had thrown a changeup in a full count.

Today's starting lineup has been posted, and once again Yoenis Cespedes and Coco Crisp are not in it. Three right-handed batters will face Hiroki Kuroda: Josh Donaldson, Chris Young, and Derek Norris. Last night, Nate Freiman started while Norris sat. Today, Norris will do the catching duties for Jarrod Parker while John Jaso will DH.

On this day a year ago, the A's came from behind to beat the Rockies by a score of 10 to 8. They scored three in the ninth off of Rafael Betancourt and Ryan Cook closed it out.
