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 post 2022 revision of our top 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.
Last year, the Oakland continued their tradition as a basement dweller, that develop talent only to trade them when they can no longer afford them. This makes it very difficult for anyone to crack the Top 50, and no one was able to do so in 2022, but we wanted to show that this reflects the last season.
As always, we present our top five, which was not affected by the last season:
1. Lefty Grove
3. Eddie Plank
4. Jimmie Foxx
5. Al Simmons
You can find the entire list here.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
