Oakland A's: Season Checkpoint No. 2

Eh, not so much

Since our first checkpoint of the season (when the A's were 19-18), the team has gone 20-24. Does not sound like the best record. But when considering the injuries to Yoenis Cespedes, Bartolo Colon, Brandon McCarthy as well as the designated hitter that never played a single game as a member of this ball club, it could have been much worse.

The A's now sit at 39-42, on pace for 78 wins, an improvement over any season in the Bob Geren era. 

However, there are signs that suggest the A's could potentially be a sleeper team in the second half of the 2012 MLB season. But that is for another day. Right now, I hand out my awards and analysis of the first half of the Oakland A's season. Drumroll, if you please.
