MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Oakland Athletics Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday, Athletics Nation!

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving—I’m still away from home, and A’s news has not been dropping at a torrential pace, so please forgive my being somewhat brief in handing off your latest news links.

Sean Murphy continues to attract trade interest, as the Rays are now apparently checking in on the A’s star catcher according to Simon Hampton at MLB Trade Rumors.

Meanwhile, AN’s own legendary Blogfather profiled Oakland’s new mayor elect, Sheng Thao, and discussed how her victory could affect the proposed Howard Terminal development. And while I’m on the subject, I’d like to offer up a mea culpa for referring to Thao’s mayoral opponent, Loren Taylor, as a ‘she’ in my Friday rumblings—I’m sure I’d have known Taylor is a ‘he’ if I lived in Oakland. This Angeleno regrets the error.

Have a wonderful week, AN!
