A's pitcher Brandon McCarthy wrote the back page column for the newest issue of Sports Illustrated. Obviously, I'm biased since McCarthy is a part-time Hot Clicks writer, but the article, which covers McCarthy's injury, brain surgery and return to the A's, is a must read. If you have a magnifying glass, or know how to use the zoom on your browser, you can read it here after clicking in the image of the story. And, yes, the picture above of McCarthy's jersey hanging in the A's dugout is relevant to the article based on the qoute above.
