Streamgraph of the 2012 Oakland A's offensive production

Stream_medium

I've been making streamgraphs of the offensive production of each team for the 2012 season.

Here is the Athletics Streamgraph.

Some might have chosen to do them in a particular order, but so far I've chosen to create them in the order of theams that I think would be most interesting. This is the second one I made, and the A's did not disappoint, with 19 players having more than 100 plate appearances, and most of them contributing significantly at one point or another, it made for a really interesting chart.

I also wanted to see whether the A's torrid run to clinch the AL West championship was reflected in their offensive production. While their production was certainly better than earlier in the season, and definitely contributed, they won a longish stretch of games toward the end where their production was mostly average.

This might just be me wanting to see a resurgence of Moneyball a decade later, but the A's are definitely an interesting ball club. I hope you enjoy the chart, and I'd love to hear any feedback.
