The A's first division title since 2006. They actually finished 1st or 2nd every year between 1999 and 2006. Their worst record in that stretch was 88 wins. After 2006, they haven't been between 74 and 81 wins.
Maybe someday they'll get a new stadium and they can start drawing more fans.
I've read that Selig is sitting on a report on the area restrictions the A's are seeking to change so they can move into the Giants' territory.
