behind their 3 young aces, the A's should win the west this year. the angels were very lucky in their WS title last year, and the mariners are solid, but nowhere near the A's. If oakland gets one more bat during the season this year, i would REALLY watch out for them come playoff time, cause theyll be the team to beat

the A`s have the best rotation. They need foulk to come up big and durazo to stay healthy and swing the bat and this could be the yeaar for the A`s.

durazo could be that one more hitter...

tejada, chavez, durazo, dye could prove to be enough offense.

A's-- the team to beat

The AL West seems tougher this year. Texas has relief pitchers. Seattle has Randy Winn. The Angels have Garret Anderson and the confidence that winning the World Series brings.
Currently, its a three way tie at 7-5.

Still, I think the A's will repeat in the Division. If the 4th or 5th starter fails, then Rich Harden comes up. He went from AA to AAA after not allowing a single baserunner. Between last year in A and this year, where he's now in AAA, he retired 57 batters in a row without a hit. Does that even happen in Little League?

Durazio is looking great, as the extra bat. If he gets injured, Piatt or someone will step up.

Foulke looks great as closer.

Middle relief looks terrible, but those people do nothing in post-season anyway. (I guess I'm forgetting K-Rod.) Still, I have hope in Rincon.

One A's prediction. Since I can't imagine Mark Ellis keeping up the pace he has established, but I can imagine Chris Singleton keeping up the pace, I bet by the end of the year, Chris is batting lead-off. This is my personal guess. If I'm wrong, blame only me. If I'm right, give me credit.

Go A's.

What about Byrnes being that "one more hitter". He has been great.
