Podcast & Links: AL West Player Movement

Opponents' dreams collapse-o when they get a glimpse of Alberto Callaspo. - Brad White

Alex Hall goes on the Phil Naessens Show to talk AL West baseball. Also, a Daily Link Dump.

Good morning, Athletics Nation! I'd like to say that I'm bummed that the A's are in second place, but then I think about how well things worked out for Texas last year when they were in first place in August. Then I don't feel so bad.

On today's Phil Naessens Show, we discuss the various player movement in the AL West, including Oakland's Alberto Callaspo and Texas's Alex Rios, Adam Rosales, and Travis Blackley. Listen to the show right here on AN by using the media player embedded below; I'm leading off, so just press play and listen to my 14-minute segment.

Give it a listen and leave your feedback in the comments!

...And now, Torrey's Taco Stand, aka the Daily Link Dump:

(DLD coming later this morning.)

Dump away!
