Oakland A's acquire Chuckie the Chinchilla, per report


This story is still developing, but Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick reports that Chuckie has been added to the clubhouse. It is unclear what the A's gave up to acquire Chuckie, but it should be noted that the Rally Possum was held out of Thursday night's game (explaining the lack of rallies) and is scheduled to be a free agent at season's end. It is believed that Chuckie is under contract for several more seasons, and although his cuteness is not considered as elite as the league's hedgehog prospects he still has a high ceiling (also, all hedgehogs have no-trade clauses to California teams due to being illegal in the state). More details as they are made public.
