Daily Link Dump 4/11/14

Friday links before the A's take on Seattle.

How does weather affect offensive production? Brad Johnson and Daren Willman break it down with a nifty article from Hardball Times.

It has nothing to do with the A's, but Justin Upton hit a ball really far last night.

In news that has nothing to do with baseball altogether, Tomas Hertl returns to the ice this evening. For those of you that aren't particularly interested in hockey, I suggest keeping an eye on Hertl, and not just his amazing tweets. He's a dynamic player who cannot stop smiling. fun must be alwalys :-))

The new home plate collision rule was used yesterday, and I personally found it to be a load of garbage. How do you see it?

Sam Miller of Baseball Prospectus sings the praises of two A's farmhands, Nate Freiman and Billy Burns. Most of the article is behind a paywall.

Tonight's minor league games include the River Cats home opener. The Ports will host Visalia less than 24 hours after concluding their 18-inning marathon.

On this day a year ago, the A's finished off a three-game sweep at Angel Stadium.

Today's starting lineup includes Sam Fuld and Daric Barton, but not Josh Reddick.
