Power Rankings
The 94 losses are the most since 1997, which is the season that prompted the club to hire Billy Beane as GM.
The A's have had 13 pitchers make at least one start this season and 10 with at least five starts. That's not much continuity.
Barry Zito is making a start against Tim Hudson and Mark Mulder will be there. That's fun.
The most losses in the Billy Beane era -- which goes back to the 1998 season -- is 88. So these A's (62-83 through Tuesday) are in danger of being his worst team.
In one of the more baffling things we could see in a season, the A's still have a positive run differential, despite being 19 games under .500.
The A's are on pace for 71 wins. They haven't won fewer than 74 since 1997.
The return of Sean Doolittle was a reminder of how insane he was for an extended stretch last season but also how easily that can all go away for pitchers.
Early and easy prediction: They are ridiculously active this coming offseason.
They have the best ERA and second-worst record in the AL. Repeat after me: Baseball is funny.
Stephen Vogt was one of the best stories of the early season and made an unlikely trip to the All-Star Game. The well has run dry for him on offense, which was predictable, but no one can ever take away the fact that he made an All-Star Game in the bigs. Good for him.
