Proponents of the Athletics relocating or getting a new stadium will certainly want to bookmark these tweets:

The Athletics wrapped up a six-game homestand with a 10-2 victory over the Mariners this afternoon and will now leave the exquisite confines of the O.co Coliseum for a seven-game road trip to Texas and Seattle.

White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson needed help leaving the field after suffering an ankle injury in the fifth inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Anderson was fielding a ball hit up the middle by J.D. Martinez, appearing to twist his ankle in the process.

Leury García moved from center field to shortstop and Ryan Cordell entered the game to play center field. Anderson was 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored on the night.

The White Sox should be able to provide more information later tonight or tomorrow. Anderson is in the midst of his best season, entering Tuesday batting .313/.338/.485 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI, 38 runs scored, and 15 stolen bases in 278 plate appearances.
