A's hope patience pays off with arrival of young core talent

MESA, Ariz. (AP) The often-rebuilding Oakland Athletics are leaning on young talent again in 2018, maintaining a philosophy of developing prospects from within their organization and acquiring them from other teams for more expensive veterans.

It's become the norm for manager Bob Melvin and his staff, and while the process has yielded three straight last-place finishes in the AL West, Melvin feels his team turned a corner with a strong finish to the 2017 regular season, giving him optimism for 2018.

The patience might also have produced a core group of players that could be with the club for years.
