ANAHEIM – Bob Melvin dug down for a bit of humor Tuesday night, even after one of the most emotionally draining days he’s experienced as the A’s manager.

OAKLAND – Surely when A’s officials first decided to make a run at signing Yoenis Cespedes, they envisioned him doing a lot of special things on the baseball diamond.
