It's not all bad in Oakland
It has been a roller coaster for A’s fans this season so far, to say the least. The A’s started off the season looking decent, not great, but like a team that was not going to lose 90-100 games. Entering May the A’s were 12-13, they started the month off by taking back-to-back series against the Red Sox and Rays, but finished the month going 11-16. Entering June the A’s were 22-29 and now have a 5-6 record on the month so far.
It’s been a frustrating year so far, the promise the A’s once showed at the beginning of the season is now long gone and we are looking at what will probably be another losing season for the green and gold.
Where They Are Right Now:
There are exactly 100 games left for this team, they are currently 8 games under .500 and 9 games out of first place. The A’s are in third place in the division, but are only half a game ahead of the Seattle Mariners. Unless the A’s go on some sort of tear, it’s not likely the A’s will take the division this season, nor does it seem likely they will ever see .500 again.
What’s Going Right:
Before I get into what is going wrong with the team, I would like to look at the bright spots on the team. They may be losing a lot more than winning recently, but there are still many reasons why you should continue to watch the team.
