ANAHEIM - The A’s traded their 2017 All-Star on Sunday, sending first baseman Yonder Alonso to the Mariners in exchange for onetime Oakland prospect Boog Powell.Instead of withdrawing the revocable waivers, Oakland - continuing its stated mission to go young - worked out a deal for Powell, 24, an outfielder who hit .194 with two RBIs in 23 games with Seattle this year but who is batting .340 in 58 games at Triple-A Tacoma.Vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane said a month ago that the team is in a full rebuild with an eye to going into a new stadium with a strong core group centered around the current young players.Of his work with them, Alonso said with a laugh, “I tried to help them out every single day, I definitely think they got the picture.”Alonso already had texted his longtime friend and former Oakland teammate Danny Valencia, who now probably will platoon at first with Alonso.With Matt Joyce serving the final day of his two-game suspension for directing an anti-gay slur at a fan, Oakland will have a 23-man roster against the Angels on Sunday because first baseman-outfielder Matt Olson couldn’t arrive in time for the day game in Anaheim.Olson’s promotion won’t be official until he arrives in Oakland on Monday or Tuesday, but manager Bob Melvin said that Olson will go into a first-base platoon with Healy.Olson is batting .272 with 23 homers, 60 RBIs and 45 walks in 79 games at Triple-A Nashville, where he has an OPS of .935.

- A’s Matt Olson getting into swing of things
By Steve Kroner - Tuesday Aug 15, 2017
A’s Matt Olson getting into swing of thingsBaseball’s chicken-and-egg question — do players thrive because they get consistent playing time or do they get consistent playing time because they’re thriving? — has a perfect case study in A’s first baseman Matt Olson.Olson homered in each of the final three games of the Baltimore series over the weekend.Olson, 23, has accepted his fate of yo-yoing between Oakland and Triple-A Nashville.“It isn’t as bad of a gig as the media makes it out to be,” Olson said before going 0-for-4 Monday.Olson said that manager Bob Melvin just came up to me in the dugout and was like, ‘Someone’s got to go.Olson returned to the big club Wednesday, and this time, it appears he’ll get an extended stay in the majors.[...] he knows he’s going to get a significant opportunity and he’s taken advantage of it.To put some significance to Olson’s recent power surge:On Sunday, he became the first left-handed hitter to take Baltimore’s Zach Britton deep since April 29, 2013.Olson is hitting .200 with seven homers in 75 at-bats with the A’s this season.“It doesn’t ever look like anything really makes him nervous or antsy,” Melvin said.Steve Kroner is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.The A’s on Monday announced a season-ticket membership program for the 2018 season.Season-ticket holders will receive various benefits based on their membership level.

- Portrait painting in action at Stanford
By Sam Whiting - Wednesday May 24, 2017
At 11:30 Monday morning, writer Tammy Fortin set up her manual Olivetti in the grand marble atrium at Cantor Arts Center and began tapping out a short story. [...] artist Hope Gangloff set up her acrylic paints and began painting a portrait of Fortin as she typed. The main entrance to the Stanford University museum, built in 1894, has been converted into Gangloff’s studio as the first in a five-year series called the Diekman Contemporary Commissions Program, underwritten by arts benefactors John and Sue Diekman. There is a lot to tell because Gangloff, 42, lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., and drove out in her Subaru with her boxer mutt Olly, and all her paints and brushes and buckets. “She’s a fun challenge,” says Gangloff, as Fortin clacks away in single space, working that carriage return, her salt-and-pepper hair blending nicely with the marble wall behind her. The typewriter sits on a pullout tray at a midcentury metal office desk. Scattered around are a metal lunch box in red tartan, a bottle of Wite-Out, a magnifying glass and any number of dictionaries and art history books open for quick reference, plus a Princess dial phone with the receiver off the hook and dangling to the floor so she won’t be distracted by a caller. There is a lot of detail to capture, and those who can’t wait around to see the finished product can go upstairs where the concurrent show “Hope Gangloff Curates Portraiture” is on the balcony. There is a whole wall of portraits, and visitors can turn around and lean over the railing to see the next one being worked on at the bottom of the stairs. “Hope is an incredibly talented painter who evokes the 19th and 20th century masters and updates the tradition, ” says Carty.
