As a follow-up to the Oakland Athletics heartbreaking 2014 season, 2015 was a letdown. Rather than add to a roster that got the A’s to the Wild Card game in 2014, Oakland decided to retool. 31 players appeared in an A’s uniform at some point during the 2015 season that weren’t on the team last year. Between the end of the 2014 season to end of the 2015 season, the A’s made 21 trades that sent out 18 players and brought back 28.

Following a season with so much turnover and disappointment, it can be difficult to focus on the positives the A’s have going forward. I focussed on 4 players from this past season who surpassed expectations to give A’s fans a glimmer of hope for things to come.
