OAKLAND (CBS Sports) — The Oakland A’s have September figured out.

Don’t be surprised if this is the year they figure out October, too.

They won’t be favored, of course. The A’s rarely are favored. They weren’t favored in the American League West last year, and they weren’t favored this year.

They won last year, and now they’ve done it again.

It’s a great story they’re writing, the story of a group of players who have found a home on a team that can’t find one. They play for now in a ballpark best known for its sewage, which shows up in the most unfortunate places at the most unfortunate times.

READ MORE from CBS Sports on how the A’s are eyeing more than just the playoffs.
