07:16 AM ET 01.02 | What are the odds that Oakland might shop for a big-bat DH? Every offseason, I get more questions about the possibility of the A's landing a big bat, the one that's going to carry them to the World Series. This kind of wishful thinking is just that. Oakland doesn't have the means to reel one in, which is why the club has been creative in building its roster. This very much applies to the A's DH situation. They don't employ a full-time one, as is becoming a trend in the American League, but rather extend their platoon system to this role, too. John Jaso figures to get the bulk of playing time here in 2014, while manager Bob Melvin also rotates in Yoenis Cespedes and Coco Crisp occasionally in an effort to keep them healthy.
