Unfortunately, it seems like it has been like this for years now, the Oakland Athletics have not been able to have a winning season. The 2016 season was just another one to add to the pile of losers. They finished last in the AL West this season and there seemed like there was no return for them.
Often being compared to their winning neighbors across the Bay, the A’s have to deal with competing for the love and attention of the Bay Area fans. It’s hard to be a fan of an always losing team but there are still fans out there that have been with them since the beginning.
Not all of their season was awful though, they were able to pick up Khris Davis. He was their bright light at the end of the tunnel for the A’s but that wasn’t enough for them to make a winning team.
This next season, they need a spunk of energy that Oakland hasn’t felt in a long time. Hopefully they will get back to that point so that the Bay Area can have another Bay World Series again.
