Adding to a truly historic season, the Oakland A's are poised to make history by trotting out an all-rookie starting rotation this postseason. Travis Blackley, A.J. Griffin, Tom Milone, Jarrod Parker and Dan Straily have continued to provide enough to push the A's to the finish line and reach their first trip to October since 2006.
But the strain of the last kick to the finish has impacted their rotation. Preferably, the A's would probably like to start Jarrod Parker in their first game (wild card or divisional series), but with the A's lacking the luxury of setting the rotation, that duty likely falls to Tom Milone. While Milone has been solid, Oakland definitely hopes his start takes place at the Coliseum instead of in Baltimore.
While this list may not represent who actually starts in terms of a rotation, here is my list of the A's best as it stands right now headed toward the playoffs.
