The Oakland Athletics might have surprised some outside observers with their emergence as a wild card contender this season, but they haven’t surprised Josh Reddick.

The 25-year-old outfielder has been a pleasant surprise himself in 2012, emerging as a legitimate power threat for the A’s after an offseason trade that sent Andrew Bailey and Ryan Sweeney to Boston.

NESN’s Naoko Funayama caught up with Reddick before the Red Sox took on the A’s on Friday to discuss his new home. Check it out in the video above from Red Sox Gameday LIVE, presented by UNO.
