Report: Athletics Seek Extension for Josh Reddick

The Oakland Athletics underwent a tumultuous season last year. Going back to the 2014 off-season, the Athletics underwent a rebuild of their entire roster as key players were shipped out in order to bring in younger talent and beef up the farm system. That approach continued into the off-season as the Athletics sold off more veteran players to bring in younger talent. The changes...

A's Reddick enjoying benefits of renewed focus at the plate

Right fielder Josh Reddick hit 32 home runs for the Oakland Athletics in 2012, his first year with the club - but he also struck out 151 times.  Since then, Reddick has only come close to 100 whiffs one time, when he struck out 86 times in 2013. This is no coincidence, as he recently opened up with's Jane Lee about his focused effort to move away from a strikeout-prone slugger...

Is a Josh Reddick Trade Too Crazy of an Idea for the Angels?

So there I was, just hanging out, painting the seats to a dining room set that is being turned into patio furniture, when I decided to take a break and check out Twitter. This is a regular thing for me, and it is fun to see what new and exciting news is going to lead to the end of civilization as we know it. At least, that’s how the doomsdayers put it, and most of their ranting...

Josh Reddick sends great 'Dumb and Dumber' tweet about A's

Josh Reddick just needed to have a little faith in his general manager. The Oakland Athletics have made some head-scratching moves this offseason, most notably trading their star, Josh Donaldson, to the Toronto Blue Jays on Nov. 28. Like the rest of the baseball world, Reddick was confused by the trade, but he took his doubt a step further and openly criticized his ballclub, stating...

Josh Reddick uses ‘Careless Whisper’ as walk-up song

Allow me the indulgence of nostalgically hearkening back to the halcyon days of my youth by reminiscing about the greatness of Wham! as we marvel at arguably the greatest walk-up song ever used by a major league baseball player. Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick currently is using the George Michael classic slow jam “Careless Whisper” […] The post Maybe it’s better this...

WATCH: Josh Reddick makes incredible homer-robbing catch

Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick has made his share of great catches in the past, but in Wednesday's game against the Giants, he may have outdone himself. Michael Morse hit a fly ball to deep right field, and Reddick proceeded to scale the wall, hang on, reach far over the fence, and rob Morse of a home run. This catch was even better than his "Spiderman" catch in Toronto...
