Oakland A's: Bright Spots and Low Points Thus Far in 2012

After three weeks of baseball, the A's find themselves in a position I'm sure they're pleased with, tied for second in the division with Seattle.  After taking the last three in Anaheim against the Angels, the A's are a respectable 7-7, owning the same amount of victories as the Yankees and Rays.

Carried thus far by their pitching, the A's offense needs to drastically improve if they're to continue to compete with the likes of New York and Tampa Bay for a wild card spot.  Now this should surprise no one, but the A's offense, which has been dormant for years now, is showing signs that it could improve.

For the first time in awhile, it appears as though Oakland's lineup does in fact have some power potential.  Currently the A's have a combined 12 home runs, to put that into perspective they didn't reach that total last year until game 27.

There are a lot of positives for the A's so far, but also a lot of negatives that still need to be addressed.
