Many People (including myself) had huge expectations for the 2009 Oakland Athletics. They were supposed to be the AL Sleeper Team. But, now it is already Mid-July and the A's are in the cellar.

But the record does not tell readers the true story of the 2009 A's. I am actually excited with what I saw in the first half. Of course they had no hitting ,but, when you live in Oakland, you get used to that.

What I liked was the pitching of Outman, Braden, Anderson, Cahill, Mazzaro whom I will boldly call "The Top Pitching Staff of 2012." So with this pitching could the A's actually make a run in the 2nd half?
