Links before the Mariners open their final series at the Coliseum in 2013.

In case you hadn't seen it yet, the ESPN cameras made a good catch and found one Boston fan who doesn't love Alex Rodriguez.

Chad Dotson has a good article on Hardball Times considering the candidates for top pitcher in the American League.

While Tyson Ross has been pitching quite well with the Padreshis bunting just plain sucks.

Xander Bogaerts has been called up by the Red Sox and will most likely see some action during their upcoming series at ATandT.

Chris Cwik analyzes Chris Sale's changeup usage.  The A's fared surprisingly well against him on two occasions this year.  What impressed me the most was how difficult it was for lefties to hit off of him, which is partially due to his motion, which sends the ball cutting across the plate away from a left-handed batter.

Andrew Werner pitched six solid innings last night to lead the River Cats to a tenth victory in a row.  The lone blemish against Werner was a home run by none other than Brandon Allen.

Last night, the Ports jumped out to a 7-0 lead over Visalia in the first inning.  And then...

Tim Kawakami praises the A's depth.

Brett Anderson could be back during the upcoming road trip.  Additionally, Coco Crisp should be in tonight's lineup.

Bud Selig has implied that there may be another Blue Ribbon Committee in sight, this time in Tampa.

On this day a year ago, the A's rolled over the Indians to finish off a three-game sweep.

Tonight's starting lineup is out, with Coco back.  Seth Smith and Chris Young are both sitting.
