A's are season's most inspiring story

" The A’s are perfectly capable of hanging around, while the Rangers and Angels scramble to upgrade before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, the brawny Cuban defector, has been as advertised. The accidentally excellent supporting cast — Brandon Inge? Eric Sogard? Brandon Moss? Chris Carter? — seems smart enough to know that this is no time to start thinking about whether they truly belong. First place in the AL West is in play. So, too, is second. As of this moment, your preseason notions about this division are officially outdated."
