Okay, so this little "hot" streak of the A's is beginning to convince even the most ESPNesque critics that this team is here to stay.
So what of the future?
We will win the AL West... and the Angels know it. We took on the ChiSox both in Oakland and in Windy City.
The next big test will be Boston and New York... IN Boston and NY. We won't see Yankee stadium anymore this year but Fenway awaits us in September. And there's something about those destinations that cause otherwise good teams to play like they've never touched a bat and ball before.
Pitching is depleted for the Red Sox & Yanks so the A's have a distinct advantage there, BUT... we have many ghosts to purge in NY and Boston before A's fans will sleep well in October.
