OK. Check out the logo. Don't know why I never thought of it before last night...BUT...why is the apostrophe in the logo??? Maybe I'm dumb but I don't get it.

I think that answers the question pretty well. It's a "hack" used so that it is understandable. Otherwise, they'd be the Oakland As, which could be confusing for some.

I think Ozzie is calculating enough to not do this when they're heading out to LA for three. Knowing that they play better at home, look for it to happen on the return flight from LA.
