wow, i didn't realize it hadn't gotten that close...

looks like it could be the Halo's fighting the Yanks and Twins for the wild card not the A's

Considering the A's were 15 games under .500 not that long ago, their run is more than impressive.

  • Hell yes!
All the Moneyball bashers have quietly exited.

The A's are constructed to produce runs, and can do it with no-name offensive players.  Their performance is extremely impressive when you consider the pitchers lost whom they couldn't afford to keep last year.

At the risk of beating a dead horse, if you consider yourself a baseball fan, but have not read "Moneyball, the art of winning an unfair game", what in the hell do you read?  People magazine?
