The Scouting Report
Fixed atop the division on the strength of excellent pitching and the league’s second-best team ERA, the A’s already have the odds on their side as they seek a third consecutive AL West title. A series against the Angels pits the division rivals against one another for the second time this season. The A’s took two of three games on the road in their first series against L.A., including an 11-inning contest that displayed the Oakland bullpen’s depth and dedication to sticking out the whole game rather than leaving early to beat the traffic. But winning away from home hasn’t been much of a challenge for the A’s anyway—they tallied a 13–6 record in their first 19 road games.
In 1902, while the team now in Oakland was still the Philly Athletics, a rival manager scoffed, casting the fledgling franchise off as a herd of “white elephants.” In response, manager Connie Mack adopted the elephant as the team’s official insignia—a legacy that lives on with the current mascot, Stomper—before the A’s stampeded to the American League pennant. Since that first defiant victory, the team has won nine World Series championships, moving to Kansas City in 1955, then Oakland in 1968. Over more than a century, the club has fostered 11 league MVPs and eight Rookies of the Year. Today, the A’s dazzle fans at the 35,067-capacity Coliseum, which features a lush natural-bluegrass surface and a spacious foul territory—technically still a 19th-century Mexican province—that baits pop-up outs, making it one of the most pitcher-friendly parks in Major League Baseball.
