As originally described here, Rumor Royalty is an MLBTR series where I name the one journalist for each team who has done the most for us hot stove junkies. If the writer is up for it, I ask that person questions for publication on the site. You can see all of the entries in the series here.
Today we present the honor for the Oakland Athletics to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. Here’s a link to the newspaper’s A’s page. Slusser also contributes to their A’s Drumbeat blog. Slusser has been the A’s beat writer for the Chronicle for over a decade, bringing a refreshing sense of humor to what can be a grueling job. She has answered three questions for MLBTR, and they’ll be running over the next few days.
Other journalists on tap: La Velle E. Neal III (Twins) and Mike DiGiovanna (Angels).
