OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) No hard feelings about leaving San Francisco for Santiago Casilla. He is focused on his second stint with Oakland, the place the hard-throwing reliever received his big league start.

"There is a big part of my heart with the Athletics because they believed in me in the first place when they signed me and they believed in me again when they re-signed me," he said Friday. "They taught discipline, they taught me how to play the game of baseball. There are so many things I have to thank the A's for getting my start in the major leagues."

Casilla is crossing the bay once again, re-joining the A's with an $11 million, two-year contract after seven seasons with the Giants.
