Our All-Time Top 50 Oakland Athletics have been revised to reflect the 2021 Season

Our All-Time Top 50 Oakland Athletics have been revised to reflect the 2021 Season
31 Mar
Not in Hall of Fame

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity.  As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2022 revision of our top 50 Oakland Athletics.

As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following: 

1.  Advanced Statistics.

2.  Traditional statistics and how they finished in the American League. 

3.  Playoff accomplishments.

4.  Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Oakland failed to make the playoffs in 2021, and they did what they always do after the season, which was to trade off assets before they became too costly.  

As always, we present our top five, though there were no changes, and only one new addition overall.

1. Lefty Grove

2. Rickey Henderson

3. Eddie Plank

4. Jimmie Foxx

5. Al Simmons

You can find the entire list here.

The only new entry is Third Baseman, Matt Chapman, a defensive wizard who was traded to Toronto in the off-season, who enters at #50.

We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
