The A’s Secret Sauce: Low-Cost Power

The Oakland Athletics 1B/OF Brandon Moss played ten seasons in the minor leagues before breaking out with 30 home runs last season.

Over the past three seasons Moss has slugged .544.  Over this time he has displayed more power hitting than Jose Bautista, Josh Hamilton, Evan Longoria, Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder.

Not bad for a guy getting paid less than $6 million total over the last two seasons.
