DLD 6/25/13: Mysterious Callup Edition

USA TODAY Sports

Your links before the A's and Reds open up a two-game series.

The Midland RockHounds recently turned a triple play.

Oh lord, Giants fans are at it again. Even if you disregard the back of his jersey he's still amazing.

On this day in 1996, Mark McGwire hit his 300th big-league homer off of future Oakland A Omar Olivares.

The Astros are a nice asset for the rest of the division. We knew this quite some time ago.

Derek Holland apparently got kicked out of a concert for standing up and taking pictures.

Jordan Norberto has filed a grievance against the A's for releasing him while injured.

Scott Ostler put together a very humorous piece on his road to performing the national anthem for the River Cats.

Steve Vucinich's daughter gives us reason to believe Stephen Vogt will be the one to get the call to the bigs.

River Cats hurler Darren Byrd is seriously good at building suspense.

Bruce Maxwell is getting called up to Stockton and Ryan Ortiz is going to triple-A, which would mean it would make sense for Vogt or Luke Montz to get the call.

On this day one year ago, the A's and Mariners played the most A's-Mariners series of all the A's-Mariners series, in which the teams combined for nine runs over three games. The A's won the first of these games by a score of 1 to 0.
