Default The Oakland A's your 2012 AL West Champs

Is there a better story in sports right now?

Some of these guys were selling shoes last year. Some in Mexico some just learning how to pitch in single A. Amazing story.....wow.

Choking when it matters, so very typical of Dallas sports.

Oakland really stepped up when it mattered. 8-2 in last 10 games. Rangers: 3-7.

Amazing run

the team morphed over the season with only Reddick still in the same position as day 1;

multiple platoons, call ups from AAA contributing, mid season acquisitions contribution, rookie pitchers stepping up, etc.

I do believe they will be the first team to ever field a playoff rotation compiled of all rookies.

I think this team is less about moneyball and more about smart trades, stockpiling pitching and playing the hot bat (paying big $$ for Cespedes helped as well).

They have a few mashers (Moss, Reddick, Cespedes, Carter), some speed and the pitching depth to go deep into the playoffs.

I would LOVE to see and A's or O's versus Nats World Series.
