DLD 8/23/2013: Catcher is found edition

Can Suzuki be the Milone and Griffin whisperer? - Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Fresh links, old catcher

In case you missed it, the A's have a new catcher.  Same as an old catcher, actually.  He will wear #22.

The casualty is, of course, Derek Norris.  The team announced he was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to 8/21.

The pitchers seem excited on Twitter.  Here are their reactions:

Not sure about the Papa Slob thing, but I'll assume it's a term of endearment.

Other stuff:

How much would you pay for one year of Mike Trout?

About $40M, most likely.

Vin Scully is returning in 2014

One year ago today, the A's were shut down by Alex Cobb and the Rays.

Good thing there's no way the A's will face the Rays in the playoffs or anything.  That could be bad.

Dump away.
