The poor A's. Buster Olney was on the radio out here this morning and said "this is arguably the greatest collapse in the history of baseball." I dont know if I agree....but it certainly is up there with the greatest collapses in my lifetime. I hope they can turn it on and at least make the playoffs.
I am not saying I agree that it is THE single greatest collapse ever......but if you rewind time to a little more than a month ago, this team was easily the best team in the Major Leagues. The 2007 Mets were not considered that at any point.
