Crosby hitting stride with 'Big Mac'
Crosby won't let setback sidetrack him "During his daily
pregame session with the media, manager Bob Geren did note he was going
to be keeping a "very close" eye on his shortstop. Crosby, though, felt
confident in his ability to perform as well as he has all year. "I
wouldn't play if I knew I couldn't contribute," he said, "so I'm going
to play the way I normally do."
Crosby powers A's over Indians
Bobby Crosby snapped Oakland's five-game homerless streak with a
three-run blast in the seventh inning, just the second ball the A's have
hit out in nine games.

It's written in (all) stars for Crosby "Boston manager Terry Francona, the A's bench coach last season, is not surprised at how he rebounded. "If you look at his track record and talk to people who have seen him play, he's struggled everywhere at the beginning," said Francona, who watched Crosby last year during his September call-up. "Everywhere he's ever been, he struggled at first, and then he got better as he went along. That says a lot about a kid. And I'll tell you this: He's going to get better. He's going to get a lot better."
Macha doesn't believe him
Leads A's to victory in final pre-season game "Hopefully, they don't know too much about me yet," said Crosby, a first-round draft choice in 2000 and the son of former major leaguer Ed Crosby. "I hope I can keep it going, I guess."

Being himself is good way to start - "A's prospect Bobby Crosby will face the pressure of replacing an All-Star."
