Kansas City Athletics CTNW Favorites #5
Picking the top 5 Athletics from the KC era is a tough task. During the 13 years the A's spent in Kansas City, they finished last 6 times, second to last 5 times and never finished better than 7th. They have never had a Cy Young award winner, Rookie of the Year or MVP. The one thing they seemed to have no shortage of is Hall of Fame players turned Coach and/or Manager. They also had several players who went on to become great managers. Not only did they have a young Tony LaRussa but also Billy Martin, Whitey Herzog, Tommy Lasorda, and Dick Williams all played for the Kansas City A's.
