A's upcoming season

Lets begin by saying that we have the best pitching staff in the AL or maybe even the Majors. Now as a die heart A's Fan i want the A's to bring back excitement back to Oakland and bring the world series trophy to Oakland from San Francisco. I didn't feel excitement when the giants won the World series and after seeing them win i want the same thing to happen to Oakland. Now i have heard the A's are trying to get Adrian Beltre and that will be a great move if we can get him but obviously it will not be enough. We will have to get a good DH also. Maybe a Hideki Matsui, Lance Berkman or maybe even vladimir guerrero. Now if we can Beltre and get one of those 3 DH that will help us alot. But  what we really need is a breakout season from Chris Carter who will most likely get his shot next year. I like his swing and it will be great for us if he can hit at least .270-.300 or more with more than 20 HR with at least 70 rbi's.  But one thing i keep on thinking is i feel that Daric Barton has a lot of potential to hit more than 20 HR's. He did not show it in 2010 and i feel that he was not aggressive enough. Even though he walked a lot i noticed that he took just too many good pitches and i was not happy about that. He should be more aggressive like he was against seattle when he hist those 2 home runs including the grand slam because he was being aggressive. And i also think that if the a's are going to make a push Ryan Sweeny needs to step up a little with the power. He is a good player without a doubt but with his height he also has power to drive the ball out. So i think the missing piece of the puzzle to this club is power and if we fill the last piece to the puzzle then it shows a picture of a world series trophy. Now with that said, i feel something special will happen in Oakland next year. I feel its time and we are taking the trophy from the giants. GO A'S.
