Photo of the Day: The A's 'photo studio' is ... interesting

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

MORE: Oakland's dueling batting cages

Spring training means the return of actual basesball, and as part of the return of actual baseball, teams take official board-certified photos of their players, possibly on pain of ridicule and termination. Typically, these photos have an "Olan Mills" tinge to things, what with the gauzy backdrops, unwilling countenances and what have you.

As for the surroundings, I can't say whether what follows is typical or atypical, but it does strike me as being "throughly Oakland Athletics in conception and execution." Take it away, Yoenis Cespedes ...

Your eyes do not deceive: The A's, you see, are taking player photos in the shower and or stink lodge. We are all the better for it. Although perhaps Mr. Cespedes is not.
