No news, just a lot of contemplation and yearning

Jarrod Parker is prepared to go to war with his own mind or something. Same. Double same.

Michael Taylor is upbeat despite an imminent trade to a team that will use him as a fifth starter.

Apparently Jesse Chavez "earned" his rotation spot, which will come as a surprise to, among others, Jarrod Parker.

The A's are stretching Joe Savery out to start but leaving Josh Lindblom as a reliever? Savery has not legitimately started a professional game since 2010 in Triple-A.1 Lindblom made five starts in the major leagues this very past season, though, granted, he wasn't any good.

Bah, I don't know. Who knows. BAH.

I didn't realize that Chris Gimenez is out of options. I guess he's been around in case Derek Norris' back acted up?

Here's a Sonny Gray story. I have nothing to add. Here are some birthdays:

Pitcher Birthday
Sonny Gray 11/7/89
Trevor Cahill 3/1/88
Brett Anderson 2/1/88
Jarrod Parker 11/24/88

I'm not even making a point. I just wanted to make a table.

  1. Savery had a rehabilitation "start" in Rookie ball last year.
