Josh Reddick, RF

Can I say Billy Beane? No? Ok, let’s go with Reddick then. He’s the closest thing this iteration of the Moneyballers has to an offensive star. Billy Burns, Mark Canha, Stephen Vogt, and Marcus Semien are all better than most baseball fans probably realize. They remain under the radar for now, however. Reddick has the best personality, and it’s a shame he’s no longer paired up with Josh Donaldson. Trading Donaldson for Brett Lawrie may go down as the worst trade of the Beane Era in Oakland. Sonny Gray is also in the running to be the face of the A’s, but he’s a more low-key personality when compared to Reddick.

Honorable Mention: Sonny Gray
