The Oakland Athletics were a charter member of the American League. From
1901 until 1953, they were known as the Philadelphia Athletics. In 1954,
the team moved to Kansas City, but never had much luck there. So, in 1968,
owner Charley O. Finley moved his team to Oakland, where they play today.
The Oakland Athletics have been famous over the past decade or two for being able to spend frugally while finding good players who can perform where others might not have realized it. The formula has gotten them to the postseason many times, although the team never appears truly great.
Well, in 2011 great seems to be out of the picture, and the team is battling for respectability. Midway through the year they sat well below .500 and in last place in the division. However, all of the AL West teams were in striking range of one another, so you never know what can happen.
If the Athletics do end up making a run, as usual, they will need the pitching staff to be at the forefront of the push. Guys like Trevor Cahill and Gio Gonzalez have great tools and are young, up and coming faces.
In the lineup though, there is a near complete lack of power, as well as a lack of players who simply hit the ball well and get on base a lot. It means the team has trouble scoring runs, and even behind great work from Cahill and Gonzalez, can't win as many games as they should.
But don't give up on the Athletics, who always seem poised to make a trade or bring up a young gun and make a surprising run. That's why you should buy Athletics tickets now, see some of those young pitchers, and see what else the club has in store.
