The Oakland Athletics had a terrible season for many reasons. For one, the A’s chaotic bullpen was the worst in the league. Secondly, there was a handful of injuries that effected Oakland’s potential success. Lastly, some of the rookies’ inexperience when it came to playing in the MLB allowed for many fundamental mistakes to be made.
