MLB Team Needs 2014: Oakland Athletics

Zachary D. Rymer@zachrymerMLB Lead WriterApril 28, 2014

The road to the AL West title goes through the two-time defending champion Oakland A’s.

And so far in 2014, they don’t look particularly willing to step aside. The A’s 15-10 record through 25 games ties them atop the AL West with the Texas Rangers, and the A’s also find themselves in the top five in MLB in both runs scored and ERA.

This is not to say the A’s don’t have imperfections, though. They do, and they’re likely going to need to take care of some of them if they want to finish their season as strong as they’ve started it.

MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer is here to share some thoughts on the matter, with a special focus on Oakland’s need for some offense at second base and its need for stability both in the bullpen and in the rotation.
