The Oakland A's

So, the A's go for a month and a half when they struggle to put up a two-spot in support of the best starting pitching on the planet. Poor Dan Haren is leading the league in ERA, but is only 3-2 to show for it. Then, they go and score 17 in one game! They should be able to keep a few of those homers in the bank. So, for instance, they're playing the hated Angels late in the season, bottom of the 9th, down by 1 and a runner on first. K-Rod peers through those dorky goggles at Jason Kendall, and Bob Geren runs out of the dugout. "Ump, remember that homer that Jack Cust hit back in May against KC? Well, we're ready to use it." Bang, count the homer, A's win!

If only....
