10 Signs the Oakland Athletics Are Destined to Reach the Playoffs
Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports
Get used to celebrating. It's going to happen a lot this season.

Consult your crystal ball, the local psychic or a Ouija board and they'll all tell you the same—the Oakland Athletics are headed for their second consecutive postseason.

How can you not see the signs? They're aplenty.

From the playoff format to the schedule, the talent to a little bit of luck, the A's should have no problem making playoffs. They did it last season. Oakland earned the AL West title, taking all 162 games to do so. One month in, they've started 2013 off much better than last year.

Only one sign is missing: evidence of a slow down.

Let's take a look at the 10 indications this team will be playing baseball in October yet again.
