The Oakland A's are one of those teams that I never quite count out. Billy Beane and the coaching staff there have always seemed to be able to pull out some deal or put somebody in the right position to help the team win. That's why it's taken me so long to eliminate them. But, I have to. It really looks like they're not going to make the playoffs this year, which greatly decreases the chances of them winning the World Series.
But this means that I have only one option left in the American League West: The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, after foolishly counting out the Seattle Mariners much too soon. They may both make the postseason, but I've still got my money on Anaheim.
