Ever wanted to see a replay at a game, but the scoreboard won't show it?  Craig Calcaterra explains why.

During the previous offseason, the Rangers turned down a contract for four years, $56 million for Nelson Cruz.

Dylan Covey led the Beloit Snappers to a series sweep over Clinton, sending them to the Western Division Final.

On this day a year ago, Brandon McCarthy was recovering from surgery.  As I said yesterday, it's great to see him in good health.  He will take the mound tomorrow night at 6:05 at ATandT against Matt Cain.  It would be a great time to pull of a doubleheader.  You can cheer for the A's at 1 pm and then cheer for the A's Desert Outpost that night.

On September 6, 2012 the A's had an off-day.  Alex Hall wrote this optimistic piece and sure enough, the A's went on a 6-game win streak and took 8 of their next 9.

Tonight's starting lineup is posted, with Derek Norris catching.  Nate Freiman is the DH (did you know he's 6'8?).  Brandon Moss plays first.  No Michael Choice tonight.  It would make sense for Choice to play tomorrow.  Kurt Suzuki will most likely catch tomorrow, which should mean Choice or Norris would DH.
