March 8, 2014

MLB Network Radio‘s Spring Training Tour rolled into Phoenix, Ariz., on Friday, where Jim Bowden and Casey Stern visited with the Oakland Athletics.

Oakland Athletics 2014 outlook

Billy Beane‘s Oakland A’s enter the 2014 season perceived a bit differently than they have in the past. After winning the AL West in back-to-back seasons, many anticipate the A’s to go deep into the postseason or even contend for the World Series. There are a few new faces in camp, Scott Kazmir replaces Bartolo Colon in the starting rotation and closer Jim Johnson replaces Grant Balfour.
