There isn’t much in the way of news this morning for fans of the Oakland Athletics. Fear not though, pitchers and catchers report next week and the Cactus League season is right around the corner.

Casey Pratt posted a video to his YouTube page that includes comments from Oakland mayor Sheng Thao stating that she has had discussions with the A’s over their stadium situation.
