Oakland finished in second place in the division race a year ago, making a respectable attempt at keeping up with the Astros. The A’s will be opening the season with quality pitching and explosive hitting. Fire-balling ace Mike Fiers heads up a staff that includes Sean Manaea, Frankie Montas and young A.J. Puk. The bullpen is intact with Liam Hendriks, Yusmeiro Petit and Joakim Soria ready to serve. The A’s feature a stat-studded defense with Matt Chapman at third, Marcus Semien at short and Matt Olson at first. Olson, Semien and Chapman also can hit with power. Tony Kemp is the second baseman. Kris Davis, the DH, returns to torment opposing hurlers with his home run swing. Ramon Laureano, Stephen Piscotty and Mark Canha will open the season in the outfield. Many scouts and observers feel Oakland has all the right players to take the division.
