Josh Donaldson is one of the keys to the A's continued success.

Spring training is over and after a three-game exhibition against the San Francisco Giants, the Oakland A's officially begin the 2014 regular season. The wait is nearly over, A's fans.

Spring training was interesting to say the least.

A couple of guys looked strong but still didn't make the 25-man roster. One superstar had a terrible spring. The lineup is nearly what was expected. It's the injuries that captured most of the headlines. One key injury will alter the starting pitching rotation, and because of that, the bullpen, too, will be adjusted.

Key players will have to step up big for the A's to capture a third-consecutive pennant.

Others, though not prospects, are already on the A's but aren't as well known. This season could easily be the year a guy or two cements his name as a fan favorite.
