Nick Punto's "Bucket of Live Snakes" Challenge Injures Hundreds

"I thought it would raise awareness of intensity and getting after it. In a way, it did. A horrible, horrible way." It was only a matter of time before the "Ice Bucket Challenge," which has raised millions of dollars to combat ALS, would inspire copycats.  Unfortunately, one of these tributes has resulted in tragedy, as Nick Punto's Bucket of Live Snakes Challenge to Raise Awareness of Intensity and Getting After It (NPBLSCRAIGAI) has injured 452 people. Punto, the former Twin who is now a utility infielder with the AL West-leading Oakland Athletics, was solemn and soft-spoken in a...

Putting the Athletics' poor August into perspective

Putting the Athletics' poor August into perspective

This too shall pass. The Oakland Athletics are 73-48 entering Friday's series opener in Atlanta. However, they have hit an August swoon and are only 7-7 in the current month. You could phrase that differently -- 7-7 since trading Yoenis Cespedes for Jon Lester, for example. Or, 6-6 since losing Nick Punto to the disabled list. But one way or other, the team is treading water, and that's largely because they aren't hitting at all. They've scored 54 runs in those 14 games, and although an average of around four runs per game isn't terrible, it is worth noting that three of those victories...

A's Craig Gentry, Nick Punto still on the mend

Oakland A's Craig Gentry needs more time for broken hand to heal, and Nick Punto's hamstring has kept him from any baseball activities

Nick Punto to DL, A’s call up Nate Freiman

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at the Coliseum Bob Melvin said last night that Nick Punto would be placed on the DL today with a right hamstring strain, and that’s precisely what happened. The surprise might be who was called up (well, not that much of a surprise, since he was scratched from Sacramento’s lineup last night): first baseman Nate Freiman. No, 6-foot-8 Nate isn’t going to play a middle infield spot, but second baseman Eric Sogard has played 45 games at shortstop and he’s a perfectly decent fill-in there if needed. But the A’s are light on right-handed hitters...

Punto placed on DL, Freiman recalled

As expected, the A’s placed infielder Nick Punto on the 15-day disabled list Sunday. He suffered a strained right hamstring Saturday while rounding third base in the fifth inning of an 8-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals. The A’s recalled… Continue Reading →

Injury update: Nate Freiman recalled, Nick Punto to 15-day disabled list with right hamstring strain

The Athletics recalled first baseman Nate Freiman from Triple-A Sacramento to replace the injured Nick Punto. Where will Freiman help the team this time up? The Athletics recalled first baseman Nate Freiman from Triple-A Sacramento to replace Nick Punto on the active roster. Punto was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain, according to a press release from the team. With Punto gone, second base will fall to left-handed hitting Eric Sogard and switch-hitting Alberto Callaspo. This injury comes on the heels of a report from Susan Slusser of the San Francisco...
