There is already a plumbing issue at the Oakland A's stadium

The A's shored up their rotation and bullpen in the offseason, but apparently not their plumbing.

Ahhh, the sights and sounds of a new baseball season: the freshly cut grass, the warmth of the spring sun after a long winter, the sound of disturbing water bubbling up through the locker room drains at Coliseum.

This was a big problem last year, and now it is a problem again.

The good news is that this time, it isn't poop water. But there's definitely stuff backing up through the showers and the toilet. Third base coach Mike Gallego tweeted a video:

The good news is it almost never rains in between April and October, so this probably won't be a problem and the A's will have a season free of plumbing distractions.
