Holy Shit, The Athletics Just Won The AL WestJack Dickey10/03/12 7:55pm401EditPromoteGo to permalinkIn April, Baseball Prospectus picked the Oakland A's to finish 73-89. In June, we called the team "hopeless," and said they were playing out the string. Today, they beat the Rangers, 12-5, to finish 94-68, one game better than Texas. In first place. The Oakland A's. They won the AL West. Holy shit.
