The Scouting Report
The Oakland A’s chase a third-consecutive AL West title, and have won more games than anybody else in the MLB this season at the halfway point. Despite the A’s impressive play, the Los Angeles Angels remain on their tail. While it may seem comforting that the A’s have tallied the second-most runs in the MLB this year, the Angels have scored the most. But Oakland’s pitching corps gives up the fewest runs in the majors, plus it just got stronger with mid-season acquisitions, meaning the Angels will either struggle to come up with runs or bribe the scoreboard operator.
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.
