Why A’s will be parading World Series trophy through Oakland by 2022

OAKLAND—Wait till next year.

Those four words have unfortunately become the A’s mantra over the last 30 years. But this time, it feels different.

With the talent the A’s have in place for the next handful of seasons, this is truly the best chance they’ve had to win a World Series since their last title in 1989.

Let’s begin with the starting rotation, a group once considered the weakness of the team. Now, all of a sudden, it’s shaping up to be one of the best in baseball.

The story of how the Athletics stole the Commissioner’s Trophy would make one fine heist movie- who do we hire as a screenwriter?

Billy Beane is visibly twitching as he thinks about all the prospects he can get by trading some of these players away. Because that is what he does when he "has this kind of talent in place".

Great Scott, Marty! I told you to destroy that sports almanac, we can't afford to alter the future!!

You'd think there'd be a good "based on true events" movie in the actual stories of the Stanley Cup being paraded around.

Again with the reboots! But if there's a dog named Pickles involved, I'd watch it.
