New year, new Oakland Athletics? Well, maybe we'd like that to be true but we're not quite convinced it'll be the case. Either way, we're going to keep our heads held high and hope for the best in 2024 because despite all of the noise around the team, and the genuinely disheartening things happening with the A's, there are still a few things we have to look forward to in 2024.
Despite having traded most of the high-profile players on the roster over the past few seasons, there are still a handful of exciting young players set to take the field in Oakland next year. Between two young players who debuted in 2023, an all-star looking to continue his run of success, and a number of guys looking to make a step forward, 2024 could be an exciting year for the A's.
And not only is there room for excitement on the field, but there's a small chance that the Nevada taxpayers rescind the allocated money for John Fisher's relocation and new stadium. Until we see the final results of Schools Over Stadiums' ballot referendum, we're going to hold out hope that there's a chance the A's will remain in Oakland.
As far as on-field success goes, lets take a look at five players who we're excited to watch in 2024.
