Oakland A’s: Bob Melvin’s Smartest Moves of the 2014 Season

Serious question: Would the Oakland A's have the best record in baseball—the first and only team with over 70 wins so far—without manager Bob Melvin?

Perhaps. But having the 2012 Manager of the Year at the helm certainly hasn't hurt the team.

One could make the argument that there is no manager in baseball today that could run a Billy Beane roster more effectively. Between his mastering of platoons, clear communication, player's manager persona and faith in his guys, Melvin may very well be on his way to a second Manager of the Year award.

Just consider these five moves he's made in 2014 as examples of smart moves.
