The A’s are in another transition mode. GM Billy Beane began wheeling and dealing after another quick playoff exit. Derek Norris, Brandon Moss, Jed Lowrie, Yoenis Cespedes (traded midseason), Josh Donaldson, Alberto Callaspo, Jeff Samardzija, Jason Hammel, and Luke Gregerson were all traded or let walk in free agency mostly due to salary reasons. Beane did replace them with Billy Butler, Marcus Semien, Brett Lawrie, and Tyler Clippard, but their rough start in 2015 showed that it may not be enough. Ike Davis wound up on the DL so the Davis-Reddick-Butler lineup power combo was broken up, but even if they were together the lineup after them is questionable. Sonny Gray is an ideal 25 year old ace and Scott Kazmir is reliable behind him, but the back of the rotation is a question mark too. The Oakland Athletics play at the O.co Coliseum in Oakland. In this day and age, they’re almost infamous for their lack of resources. With no stadium plan in sight for the near future, they’ll continue to have to figure out how to maximize the resources they do have to stay competitive against bigger budget teams like Seattle and Anaheim. There’s no better man for that task than Beane, even if his moves are controversial and even if he misses on some trades, which he most certainly has. But that’s the reality of life for the Oakland A’s and three straight playoff appearances against all odds speak for themselves. The Coliseum itself may not be the best facility, but the fans there may be the most passionate in MLB. With constant chanting, noisemakers, and a rowdy, almost soccer-like atmosphere unheard of for baseball, A’s games are a spectacle for all MLB fans to see.
