Jake Fox Next Brandon Moss?

Remember when Brandon Moss went hitless in 6 at bats back in 2011 with the Phillies?  He was released that offseason and the shrewd GM of the A's, Billy Beane, inked him to a minor league contract and watched him blossom into one of the game's best run producers.  Moss has hit .268/.887 with 171 R, 58 DBL, 74 HR, 210 RBI, and a 7.6 WAR in 324 games over the past 3 seasons with...

He cracked a wRC+ north of 100 for the first time in 2009 as a member of the Orioles, at 104. He, to this point, has a career […]
