At the end of June, the Oakland Athletics were 5 games below .500. If you asked me who would win the AL West, I would have told you the Texas Rangers. Fast forward three months and the A’s are now your division champs.
The A’s are not a star studded team like many other their counterparts. They’re filled with young talent…young talent having fun and playing hard. Jonny Gomes summed it up perfectly, stating: “Once we got going, we were like a freight train. … Pedal to the metal.”
PS – Whoever you are, wherever you are – we hope the A’s go deep into the playoffs so you can continue to enjoy watching your team with your father.
