A dominant Oakland pitching corps is back in Oakland for the first time since the original big three of Mark Mulder, Tim Hudson and Barry Zito were around way back in 2000-2004.
Back then the A's were consistent playoff contenders and were always feared when any of these three pitchers were on the mound. That memory is long gone in the city of Oakland; however, there are three young pitchers that can bring the magic back.
The pitching corps of Tommy Milone, Jarrod Parker and Brandon McCarthy have a combined record of 21-13 with an average ERA of 3.08. They are dominant when they take the mound and are healthy. They are the future of Oakland A's pitching.
Let's take a look at each of these pitchers and see what they bring to the team.
