Oakland A's, Darlings of Baseball, Face Elimination Against Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers

Oakland staged a late-season rally to catch and overtake Texas and win the AL West. They avoided the Wild Card game!

What did they get in return? Two games in Detroit – which won six fewer games during the regular season – and now, finally, a home game.

The problem? Oakland is down 0-2.

Brett Anderson pitches for Oakland against Anibal Sanchez.

Sorry Billy Beane, Joaquin Andujar isn’t walking through that door. Carney Lansford isn’t walking through that door.

Because you want to see it first!
