I feel like the AL West is the least publicized division in baseball. Why? Well, the whole time it's a race between Anaheim and Arlington, and the other two (soon to be three) are just...there. They don't do anything to speed the action along, they just stand there for the fans. You know, kinda like Short Round.
I think the A's have the best chance out of the two lower teams to have a sliver of a chance in the future. The team is growing, the farm system is excellent, their star power is growing after last year's purge, they have solid stars in Kurt Suzuki and Yoenis Cespedes, and they can fight off huge teams without breaking a sweat.
The man above has been a solid rookie prospect in the past year, and I hope he continues his reign. Him and Ryan Cook have been strengthening the bullpen this year, and making an impact on the game.
Coming Tomorrow- Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau are getting old. There must be an heir apparent in Minnesota. Thankfully, there is one, and he's been the under the radar rookie of the last few years.
