  • Milton Bradley is feeling the roster crunch. [SFGate]
  • Some fans show their appreciation for Bradley … [Athletics Nation]
  • … while others take stabs at the real reason behind the surprising move. [The Drumbeat]
  • Rich Harden had a good–albeit short– relief outing in Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday and has been cleared to return. He’s expected to join the A’s this weekend as a reliever while he rebuilds his arm strength. [ESPN]
  • While Dan Haren looks to be the AL starter in the All-Star game, Alan Embree may be the biggest surprise/success story on the A’s staff this year. Since filling in for the injured Huston Street, the lefty closer has converted eight of nine saves; in his last seven outings, he’s racked up 10 K’s and no runs. [SFGate]
  • Tony LaRussa is dead sexy. [Deadspin]
  • There shan’t be a Big Apple homecoming for Mike Piazza this weekend. [NY Post]
  • Dave Stewart’s All-Star picks: John Lackey on the mound, Victor Martinez behind the dish, among others. [Throwin Heat]
  • Miggy’s gonna have to start a new streak. [ESPN]
  • If there was ever a New York name on the A’s roster, it’s Lenny DiNardo. He takes the mound against Tom Glavine at Shea tonight, 4pm Left Coast time.
