PHOENIX -- While Yoenis Cespedes, Coco Crisp and Josh Reddick deserved much of the credit for the rejuvenated Oakland Athletics' offense last season, journeyman first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss finished as the team's fourth most valuable hitter, according to ESPN's Player Rater, hitting .291 with 21 home runs. Moss accomplished this in a mere 265 at-bats, while forming an effective platoon with Chris Carter, but with Carter having been dealt to the Houston Astros, Moss figures to play more, with perhaps even better numbers pending.
