They are both awful, but at least Houston will improve with Berkman. Who are the As waiting to come back?
And somehow, I don't think Chavez, Kendall, and Durazo will all finish the season with an OPS under .700!
The fact is the A's only have two guys who are htting within 100 points of their career OPS averages right now. Despite what Madison thinks, the A's are better than about half the offenses in the league. By the end of the year, they will easily top TB, KC, Seattle, LA, and Tor and have a good shot at besting Balt, Cle, Chi, and Det, with a 50/50 shot at clearing everyon else except Boston.
