Oakland

It's now far enough in the season for me to start worrying about our traditional AL West Rivals, the Oakland A's. As everyone knows, this was supposed to be a rebuilding year, with Haren pitching for Arizona, Swisher with Orlando Cabrera in Chicago, and Barry Bonds unsigned. That said, their starting pitching has been stellar, proving again that Billy Beane is a freak, or at least lucky.

Anyone have any predictions as to the future performance of the Athletics? I have a hard time believing that their pitching's gonna stay this strong once the league has seen it more than once, but then again, Oakland never really seems to drop off the map either. Their lineup scares nobody, but when some guy named Dana has an ERA right near 3, you start to wonder.

The poll is unrelated to Oakland but still relevant.
