A’s Finding It Hard To Win With Half The Plate

Fixing what ails a big league team is not easy, and anyone who tells you otherwise should be sent packing. However the Eyeball Scout has to observations to put forth today, and they have a certain symmetry.

For the A’s to take an important step forward, their hitters need to reclaim the outer half of the plate while their pitchers need to reclaim the inner half.
