DLD 6/5/13

Mike McGinnis

Quick DLD before the final game of a three-game set at Milwaukee.

Today's starting lineups are out. Josh Reddick gets the day off in favor of Seth Smith. For Milwaukee, Ryan Braun has the day off. Logan Schafer will play left. Last night's hero, Yuniesky Betancourt, is starting at first base while Juan Francisco will play his natural position at third.

In non-A's news, Chris Perez is being investigated for drug possession.

It's not every day that Milwaukee's starting lineup makes headlines. Whether or not Braun is just getting a regular day off remains to be seen. Since Bartolo is still starting, it can be assumed that Braun is just resting.

John Hickey takes a look at the Biogenesis scandal and how it could affect the A's.

Brew Crew Ball looks at the Ryan Braun portion of the Biogenesis story.

Grantland's Jonah Keri is also writing about Biogenesis.

Rob Neyer brings us a very well-written piece on what else? Biogenesis, of course. Definitely worth a read.

On this day a year ago, Derek Holland defeated Travis Blackley, dropping the A's to a record of 24-32.
