The Oakland E's
The Oakland Athletics (A's) might want to consider changing their name to The Oakland E's, seeing as the team has committed 17 errors in only 15 games to begin the 2011 season. Firstbaseman Daric Barton is the leading culprit with 5 miscues and is closely trailed by thridbaseman Kevin Kouzmanoff with 4. This is quite a shame, because Oakland has one of the best pitching staffs in all of baseball which is currently boasting a 2.82 ERA. However, due to their errant fielding and pathetic bat wielding, they are a measly 7-8. The team has allowed 54 runs, but only 41 of them have been earned. That's just sad. Can't give the opposition too many freebies.
