Out of all of the teams in baseball, the Oakland Athletics had the most active and interesting offseason, many of which drew a lot of criticism toward general manager Billy Beane.
Beane went for it all last year and came up short, and the result was a flurry of offseason moves to dump salary and reconstruct the roster. The A's traded Jeff Samardzija, Brandon Moss, Josh Donaldson
The Athletics did acquire Ben Zobrist and Yunel Escobar, a move that at least provides some hope to the fanbase that Beane doesn't intent on completely punting the 2015 season. However, they turned around and traded Escobar to the Washington Nationals just a week later.
They also acquired Brett Lawrie, a talented infielder who has been plagued by injuries throughout his career. The A's hope that getting Lawrie off turf and onto grass will help keep him healthy.
Beane's moves this offseason were questioned by many around the game. Some of them were absolutely bewildering, and a GM without his kind of track record would really be criticized for the moves that were made. That said, maybe he knows something the rest of us don't.
Either way, it looks like Oakland will struggle to get back to the postseason. The one thing they have going for them is that the AL West looks as weak as it has been in some time with no team really standing out above the rest, so maybe there is some hope if you look really hard.
