A's Skipper Bob Melvin Discusses Tommy Milone, Starting Pitching Staff [VIDEO]

The Oakland Athletics are off to a pretty good start to their 2012 campaign, thanks greatly in part to their starting pitching staff, which many felt would struggle after breaking up most of it via trade last season and this offseason. One of these strong up-and-comers is left-hander Tom Milone, who was superb in Tuesday night's blanking of the Chicago White Sox.

After the game manager Bob Melvin took to the microphone, discussing not only Milone's outing but the development of the entire pitching staff as well, which Melvin admits is still developing but have lots of potential.

there was some unknowns...down the road there are high ceilings for all of them...there just not as experienced yet, we know we are developing they guys, and we know they are going to get better...we have a lot of faith in them obviously or we wouldn't have made those deals.

If the A's can find some consistent offense out of their lineup, they can certainly do some damage in the AL West, possibly even be dark horse candidate for the playoffs, but that's still to far away to project.
