ZiPS For Oakland
Normally I don't care about this, but given the state of the AL West, it's useful to take a look at Dan Szymborski's 2007 ZiPS projection for the A's. This is going to be a terrible offensive team, with no player slugging over .500 (which sounds oddly familiar) — so at least somebody thinks the Angels will have a better offense than the A's. The pitching looks worse than the Angels, too, as ZiPS projects Jered Weaver to have a sub-3.00 ERA next year; no Oakland starter is projected to have an ERA under 3.20. This is going to be a tough division next year within it, but its teams may not have a very good record outside the division.
