 [  ] Here are the current statistics of the 1998 Philadelphia Athletics. These guys started out like world-beaters this year, a complete turnaround from last year's miserable start, but the end result so far has been much the same. Perhaps it was the big influx of great talent in this year's draft that has made the League much tougher. Perhaps it is the re-alignment into three divisions, and the resulting schedule changes that has made the competition more aggressive. Perhaps it is just that our arch-nemesis, the Toronto Blue Jays, have kicked our collective butt!

This year we have three members of the Athletics went to the All-Star Series as starters: unanimous choice "Joltin' Joe" DiMaggio (AL 2nd in HR, 3rd in SLA and 5th in RBI), and with him, Eddie "Cocky" Collins (AL 2nd Base Fielding Leader) and "Smokey Joe" Wood (AL ERA Leader). Harmon Killebrew (AL 3rd in RBI, and 5th in HR) and Willie Hernandez (AL Save Leader) were nominated but did not get voted in, neither did they get picked as Reserves.

Unbelievable! Down to the last game of the season, tied for first place with Homestead -- and we beat them to win the AL Central Flag! Ol' Stubblebeard Grimes gets the win -- he came in relief of Gettysburg Eddie with the bases loaded and us one run down. Grimes struck out Oliver Marcelle to end the inning, and we struck back for two runs in the bottom of the inning. There was no looking back after that. Willie Hernandez closed it out for his League-leading 36th Save of the season. We are going to the Playoffs! First opponent -- Homestead!

Oh! What a letdown! We got killed by Homestead . . . swept in three games and sent packing. Tough to lose like that after such a season -- but we'll be back next year! And then we'll show'em!
