First-Quarter Grades for the Oakland Athletics

Even they're waiting to see their grades.

After 41 games, the Oakland Athletics are succeeding in three areas of the game, but they're also in danger of failing in three other facets.

Above-average hitting and below-average pitching meet in the middle, and you know what they produce? A 20-21 record. That's exactly what the A's have one-quarter of the way through the 2013 season.

Perfection is difficult, so no one is expecting all A's (no pun intended) for the coaching staff, bench, defense, bullpen, rotation and offense. Still, if Oakland hopes to finish at the top of the AL West class, it'll need to hit it hard and pick up some of its grades.

So far, two units are acing it. Another is doing well enough, but things could be better. And the final three, well, they might need to lose their video game time until they can raise their grade.

See which Oakland A's unit scores high, low and in the middle.
