DLD 2/18/14: A Tribute To Eric Sogard

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

A daily place to dump your links.

We haven't had one of these in a while! Let's take a look at the news of the day in the A's universe.

  • Eric Sogard is in a showdown with Troy Tulowitzki in the "Face of MLB" competition — the winner reaches the quarterfinals, to face off sometime next week against Buster Posey. If you're into this sort of thing and want to vote, go on Twitter and tweet anything with the hashtags #EricSogard and #FaceofMLB for your vote to count.
  • Need a reason to vote? Eric Sogard is awesome. Here are a few reminders of that awesomeness, in video form: here, herehere, and of course, here (the last one has Matt Garza in it).
  • Phil Humber, owner of the 21st perfect game in MLB history, is trying to get his career back on track in the A's organization. Susan Slusser, as always, does a great job with the story.
  • Also in yesterday's news, A's president Mike Crowley spoke with MLB.com's Jane Lee about Oakland's business model, the push for a new stadium, and the evolution of the A's fan base over the last few years.
  • This is from five days ago but it went (as far as I saw) relatively un-discussed on AN: the Port of Oakland Board is holding off on passing a motion that would clear the way for Howard Terminal authorities to actually explore the concept of a ballpark, at least for now. The motion, which would've rejected three maritime uses for the site near Jack London Square, will be revisited on Feb. 27. Newballpark.org talks about it here.
  • Drew Pomeranz's mechanics are back where they need to be, writes Jane Lee.
