The Scouting Report
As the autumn winds begin to cool the air, the race for the playoffs is heating up in the American League. And with a healthy record comfortably above .500, the A’s must remain focused as they battle their way toward a playoff berth. Wins against their division rivals, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Seattle Mariners, and impressive showings against the Baltimore Orioles could help the team to cement a wild-card spot or even usurp the division title from the dominant Texas Rangers.
A stable of young talent has propelled the A’s this season, including rookie outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and right fielder Josh Reddick, who’s tallied 26 homers and 67 runs through 121 games. All-Star rookie right-hander Ryan Cook continues to give his infielders time to relax and play bridge, maintaining a trim 2.50 ERA in 53 relief appearances.
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, including future titans Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire. 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.
