The A's are a team near the bottom in terms of payroll and income. Their market is the poorer half of the Bay Area. Yet by dint of intelligent acquisition of players and insightful analysis into what wins and loses games, they've been a good team for a while now, and will be at least for the immediate future. From the "nondescript" thread, I gather that Charlton would be a candidate. But is CAFC the best choice?
