The Oakland A’s are looking great, with nine wins in a row many are wondering if the team can make a run at taking the A.L. West. The A’s are pouring it on and with the month of September here there is no better time to do it. The A’s are only 3 games behind the Texas Rangers for the top spot in the West. If Oakland can continue the charge they are on and if the Rangers lose a couple of games the A’s could get there. Oakland just finished a sweep against the Red Sox, they now start a 3 game series against the Angels and if the A’s can continue to get the kind of pitching they got from Brett Anderson they could make a serious move on the Rangers.
Of course the A’s offense is doing well too, Seth Smith and Stephen Drew smacked some home runs last night that always helps your team win. If the A’s offense continues to produce the way they have lately they are going to be hard to beat. If the A’s can sweep the Angels they will be into double-digit wins in a row, and the teams confidence will continue to grow. Hey, these guys are already flying high. A little more can only make it better….
