by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) With Ben Zobrist going on the DL the A’s recalled Max Muncy to take his place on the roster.  It’s a little bit of a surprise that it wasn’t Joey Wendle, who could’ve stepped into the starting 2B job, but it’s not like Muncy has no chance of playing.  He started at 3B yesterday and we have to remember that Brett Lawrie has a history of playing 2B (38 games in (read more...)
