With new, and old, faces, Athletics hope to contend again

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Athletics are accustomed to playing from the bottom.

Two last-place finishes in the AL West and too many injuries to count have left the low-budget club playing to catch up with the rest of the division.

"It's just kind of who we are and who we've been, at least the last 10 years or so. It's a lot of younger guys, younger guys getting a chance to perform. That's the way we do it here," manager Bob Melvin said. "We're not afraid to be that underdog. Sometimes being under the radar, certainly to start the season, might not be a bad thing."
