The three-headed monster of Ryan Cook, Sean Doolittle and Grant Balfour were a big reason for the A's sweep of the Rangers, but don't overlook Evan Scribner's contribution.
The A's shocked the world and won the AL West Wednesday, but don't tell them it wasn't supposed to happen -- the young team is brimming with confidence heading into the postseason.
Down 5-1 early, the A's capitalized on a big error by Josh Hamilton to take a lead they would not relinquish and steal the division crown away from the Texas Rangers in Game 162.
Bob Melvin and Billy Beane today addressed the possible availability of pitchers Brett Anderson and Bartolo Colon in the playoffs.
There's no question the A's are exceeding the low preseason expectations of the national media. But what about of their own general manager? Billy Beane shared what he expected from this group of players.
