Elephant Rumblings: The A’s off-day was about as interesting as it could be!

Lots of links from the baseball world.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Baltimore Orioles Michael Owens-USA TODAY Sports

Prospect Watch:


Today in Baseball History:

  • 1922 - The Cubs beat the Phillies 26-23. The Cubs had lead 25-6 in the fourth inning.
  • 1986 - Mark McGwire hits his first major league homerun as the A’s win at Tiger Stadium 8-4.

Best of Twitter:

  • Rajai’s roster spot...
  • No dog in the NL Central/NL Wild Card race, but this seems like a bit of an overstatement...
  • It looks as though Johnny Cueto may be back, but less clear are Upton, Tanaka’s situations...
  • Finally, absolutely no idea how this didn’t make it into yesterday’s baseball history section, but it was too cool not to share today!
