A’s strength/conditioning coach reportedly spied on players in weight room

In a bizarre turn of events, an Oakland A’s employee is being investigated for spying on players with a hidden camera, reports Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports. The employee, strength and conditioning coach Michael Henriques, installed the camera in the weight room so that he could monitor players’ workouts and rehab while the team was on the road. Per Brown:

“This was the misguided action of one employee,” said Billy Beane, the A’s executive vice president of baseball operations. “We hired an independent investigator. While the employee’s intentions were good his judgment was very poor.”

Rob Manfred: I have not certainly given up on Oakland.

SAN DIEGO - Commissioner Rob Manfred, insisting he remains a proponent of the A’s staying in Oakland, said Major League Baseball would regret a relocation.
“I am committed to Oakland as a major-league site,” Manfred said Tuesday. “If we were to leave Oakland, I think 10 years from now we would be more likely than not looking backwards saying we made a mistake.

AP: Plumbing issues in Yankees’ dugout at Oakland Coliseum

And Shooty forgot to bring his plunger.

There were plumbing issues in the visitor’s dugout at the Oakland Coliseum before the start of Saturday’s game against the New York Yankees.

Several maintenance workers spent nearly an hour trying to fix a backed up toilet while a member of the Coliseum staff mopped up the standing water seeping into the dugout. Yankees manager Joe Girardi and some New York players sidestepped the mess as they made their way to the field for pre-game workouts.
