    Is Gio Gonzalez officially an Ace?

    Guy has been dealing all year, in a tough division.

    ERA has been declining year after year.

    He is pretty good...

    Has command problems at times,...

    Think he is a solid #2 but not an Ace yet...

    A's have a very very good rotation, if they get a power hitting 3rd baseman they will probably win the division by a couple games...

    Most don't even realize how good Tyson Ross is and he is their fifth starter...Braden getting hurt actually helps them, guy is over rated thanks to the perfect game..

    I don't think it is possible to have a better defense up the middle.. (Sazuki, Pennington, Ellis, Crisp) This along with their pitchers park makes it a feat to score 4 runs for any team that comes to Oakland.. Even the Boston's of the world...

    Kouzmanoff is killing the team right now...

    None of the A's pitchers like going to Texas,... they are spoiled by the dank Oakland air at night...

    Cahill, Anderson, Gonzalez, Braden... None of these guys light up the radar gun, but all with great ERA's.

    A's might be a playoff team this year.

    No. This happens to bad pitchers from time to time.
