Injury updates and a place to hang out

The A's answered a lot of lingering injury questions leftover from the end of the season today:

So that's a big sigh of relief on the former two players. That being said, this is how Brett Anderson started out: velocity drop, forearm strain diagnosis, and then we all know what happened after that.  Since Gray's surgery will be on his left thumb, he should be at full strength for Spring Training.

I think we all realized that Reddick needed surgery at some point, and the offseason will give him time to recover.  I don't think he would be traded, but if it he is, it shouldn't hamper his value from an injury perspective

Please dump any other links, if you would like.  The NLCS will continue today, and we can have a game thread if there is interest.
