The Oakland Athletics got three key health-related questions
answered this spring but wound up developing a few others
during the Cactus League season -- and anyone who has followed
the A's the past three years is aware that packed disabled

General manager Jack Zduriencik changed the way a lot of us
looked at the Mariners on Dec. 10, 2008, when he explained the
logic behind a blockbuster deal in a radio interview. “With

balls dropping in for hits.”
