Predicting the 2014 Stats for the Oakland Athletics' Opening Day Lineup

Bob Melvin
Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

The Oakland Athletics have done an outstanding job in the past two seasons of competing with the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels despite having a significantly lower payroll. While the Rangers and Angels have the ability to spend big money, the Athletics have to make shrewd personnel decisions to sustain success. The 2014 season should be another successful one for the A's, as they have a very powerful lineup and a deep rotation.
