Oakland Athletics

While most teams in Major League Baseball underachieve potential upside, Oakland continues to get it done despite a lower-tier salary base ($84 million in 2019 – 25th). The A’s won 97 games in back-to-back seasons, but they bowed out of the playoffs in the American League Wild Card game each year.

They won five championships in Philadelphia (1910, 1911, 1913, 1929, and 1930) and four others in Oakland (1972, 1973, 1974, and 1989) while making the playoffs in 28 different seasons.
