Oakland facelift: Where have all the A’s gone?

Now that spring training games have begun, the visual evidence of Oakland’s offseason overhaul is there for all of us to see.

To wit, here were the 10 players in the A’s lineup at the moment Sal Perez roped his walk-off single down the left-field line in the American League Wild Card Game:

P — Jason Hammel

C — Derek Norris

1B — Alberto Callaspo

2B — Nick Punto

3B — Josh Donaldson

SS — Jed Lowrie

LF — Jonny Gomes

CF — Sam Fuld

RF — Josh Reddick

DH — Brandon Moss

Of that group, only Fuld and Reddick are still with the A’s. Two of 10! In fact, Atlanta’s 40-man roster this spring includes the same number of players from that game-ending snapshot (Callaspo and Gomes).

Short of contracting a franchise, this is the most extreme dismantling one could imagine for a playoff team last seen trudging toward the dugout after a season-ending, walk-off loss.

But given the A’s track record, I’m sure they’ll be fine.
