    Yoenis Cespedes

    Athletics 4, Mariners 1:  As you would expect, the A’s and M’s were all about the home runs today. All the game’s runs were scored on bombs, in fact, though they gave us their de riguer 0-0 tie through six innings. Three of the four dingers came in the seventh, with Justin Smoak going deep…

    From the man who brought us the idea of “coffee farts” comes another great tweet about baseball players’ gastrointestinal systems. Take it away Brandon McCarthy: 12 hr flight to Japan and most important question is: which Oakland A will poop on the plane first? — Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) March 22, 2012 Hmm, Manny isn’t on…

    Jarrod Parker was the centerpiece of the deal which sent Trevor Cahill to the Diamondbacks in December, but he showed this afternoon that he may need a little more seasoning. Parker issued seven walks over just 3 2/3 innings against Arizona, after which he was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento. The 23-year-old right-hander undoubtedly had some…

    Bartolo Colon resuscitated his career as a member of the Yankees last season after having fat and bone marrow stem cells injected into his elbow and shoulder. Now other players are looking to follow his lead. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, Kiko Calero is considering a similar procedure as he weighs a comeback attempt…

  6. Running down the rosters: Oakland Athletics

    At least to the outside eye, it seems like the A’s have lacked a plan since they shipped off Matt Holliday after 93 games in 2009. It finally appeared that they were going for a full rebuild this winter, but after trading Trevor Cahill, Andrew Bailey and Gio Gonzalez, they re-signed Coco Crisp for $14…

    Bartolo Colon

    Bartolo Colon and the A’s made their one-year deal official yesterday, as the 38-year-old right-hander passed his physical exam. Colon, who made just $900,000 last season on a minor-league deal with the Yankees, will get a big-league deal worth $2 million in guaranteed money this time around. Oakland has shed all kinds of major-league talent…

    From USA Today’s Bob Nightengale comes word that veteran right-hander Bartolo Colon has “agreed to a deal with team,” but won’t divulge where exactly he’s headed until after he has passed a physical. That physical should take place Sunday or Monday. Jon Heyman of CBS says it’s not the Yankees, nor the Diamondbacks. The only…

  11. The A’s are talking to Bartolo Colon

    Jan 14, 2012, 5:24 PM EST

    Bartolo Colon

    Buster Olney reports the Athletics are in negotiations with Bartolo Colon. No sense if they’re going anywhere or not, but given that the A’s have traded away Trevor Cahill and Gio Gonzalez they could use an arm. Last year Colon pitched 164 innings with a 4.00 ERA and 135/40 K/BB ratio. Not bad for a…

    UPDATE: A few minutes ago Brian Cashman said that it wasn’t just A-Rod’s knee that got the German engineering treatment. It was his left shoulder too.  Here’s a full report on it all. So, to sum up: the guy who is still owed $143 million over six years to play third base for the Yankees…
