From 2012 to 2013 the Oakland Athletics kept their roster mostly intact. In both seasons, they went as far as Game 5 of the ALDS. Chances are, they'll keep this roster in 2014 as well, but if they want to get over the hump, there are a few moves worth looking into.
Don't put it past general manager Billy Beane to make a move.
It might not be a wild, Matt Holliday-caliber move. Then again, this close to contending for a World Series berth, maybe he does decide to pull the trigger on a more high-profile player.
This list contains both. There are trade options for a few bigger names. There are smaller moves that can be made. There's a look at free agents the A's should consider spending money on. There are cheap free agent options too. There's even a look at one guy who Oakland could avoid, even though they're considering signing him.
Let's take a look.
