Last season, the Athletics were one of baseball’s better teams until they fell off towards the end of season and losing to the eventual American League Champions the Kansas City Royals in the American League Wild Card game. The Athletics lost Jeff Samardzija, Jon Lester, Jason Hammel, Derek Norris, Josh Donaldson, Brandon Moss and John Jaso. The Athletics traded Yoenis Cespedes in July last year to acquire Lester, and he doesn’t even know why the Athletics gave up all this talent.
Cespedes, who is a member of the Tigers now, is playing the Athletics right now in the Tigers series which began on Memorial Day with the Athletics winning 4-0.
