Are the A's teasing me again?
Two seasons ago, I stuck my neck out in my 2009 Divisional picks by going with the Oakland A's to win the West. We had just come off seasons where teams like the Angels, the Marlins, the Tigers, the struggling Cardinals, the Rockies and Rays had won pennants that confounded the experts.
So I thought "Why not go against the grain? If I am right with my pick, then I look like a genius."
Then again, if the pick flops, then I look like a moron.
I had the 2009 Oakland Athletics winning the World Series. They finished in dead last place, 22 games behind the Angels.
But now I am looking at this team, and I can't help but wonder if I should pick them again.
