Royals-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- Over the last month, Oakland general manager Billy Beane hasn't been the least bit shy to pay a premium price for the Athletics to boast one of the most feared rotations in baseball.

He won the bidding war for coveted starter Jon Lester before Thursday's trade deadline, but it came at quite a cost as the offense now must make up for the loss of Yoenis Cespedes.

The A's haven't needed to score much with Sonny Gray on the mound lately, and he'll look to win a sixth straight start Friday night against the visiting Kansas City Royals.
