Well, the good news is that Rich Harden seemed to survive his outing today even if it wasn't 100 percent stellar. But you have to imagine there has to be some rust there since he hasn't faced major league batters for about eight months.
Oh and don't look now, but apparently Bobby Crosby is injured once again. Thanks to SF Gate's Drumbeat for the note.
I know Susan Slusser says it's nothing to be alarmed about, but Crosby is just one of those players that has this happen to him all the time. I wonder if AN has had anyone down in Arizona yet who has seen Crosby swing. Is his swing all that different? It always seemed like something that could give him back issues throughout his career because he nearly corkscrews himself into the ground on each swing. Course I've always thought the same thing about Vlad and he doesn't seem to have any issues.
The A's are now 3-2 in the Cactus League and two players were hit by pitches today. They also just happen to be two of the A's most important players in Travis Buck and Jack Cust. Just a couple more reasons to hate those A-Holes in red.
