It's not exactly a team of mercenaries (afterall, a great deal many of their 'expensive' players were in house pickups or cheap trades, Beltran excluded). They've drafted well, they've developed well, and they've simply done a great job as an organization.
And Nolan Ryan is a bauce.
They are a good example of a team doing it the right way and I can't help but applaud them for that.
I feel the same way about TX, but 5 rookies in a starting rotation? Gotta admire what the A's have done.
