It won't happen, but if the A's make the playoffs--and especially if they can take the division--Reddick will have a legitimate MVP case. He's third in the AL in rWAR and tied for third in fWAR, though Trout is running away with both types of that stat.

That Bailey for Reddick trade is looking even more one-sided by the day.

Kudos to the A's for how well they've played this year after retooling for 2015 or so, they appear ahead of schedule and the AL West is better given the moves Los Angeles of Anaheim(I just like saying that) and Texas have made.

Seriously....how is Oakland so good? They just need to go away!

(And I totally presume they are saying the same thing about the O's right about now.)

Were a great story, but if I were an Oakland fan I think they'd have a case for most compelling story. This was supposed to be a throw-away year in a long rebuilding process with the rise of the Angels and the Rangers continuing dominance. Really amazed of what they've done there.

I hate that the Oakland A's won last night 20-2 and are still leading the Wild Card.

I love that the Oakland A's won last night 20-2 and embarrassed the Red Sox.

They just keep on winning... Beat Boston 7-1 and are now 3 back from the Rangers and 3.5 up over the 3rd WC team. Run differential vs. Boston the last two nights is +24. Freakin' insane.

Jon Heyman said that about the O's, but I got no problem with this, after all nobody expected the A's to be where they are.

Good to see he is doing better. McCarthy really does not seem to be able to get a break. I think he is a good pitcher but can not stay healthy.

Some guys just do not have any luck.

Even Hayden Penn didn't get his skull broken...

This could be BIG with Orioles coming into town, if he's out for the series!

ANAHEIM -- A's outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's game against the Angels with a sprained right wrist and has been deemed day to day.

Cespedes suffered the injury while sliding into second base in the fourth inning and was replaced in left field in the top of the fifth by Brandon Moss, who began the game at first base. Chris Carter assumed that position.

In his first big league season, Cespedes has endured a handful of injuries. But when healthy, his presence in the lineup is undeniable, as the A's are 70-38 when he plays, compared to 12-22 when he doesn't start.

Would be nice to see the A's win today and stop this Yankee$ train for a second at least.

A's are also squandering an opportunity to make a run at the Rangers for the division... and of course, the Angels loom (And have a ridiculously easy schedule remaining).
