    I'm cheering for the Astros, but I think the Athletics will win.

    Why do the Athletics get to be the "A"s, but not the Angels or the Astros?

    History of the Oakland Athletics - Wikipedia

    Finley replaced Mack's elephant with a Missouri mule—not just a cartoon logo, but a real mule, which he named after himself: "Charlie O, the Mule." He also began phasing out the team name "Athletics" in favor of simply "A's."

    That explains who started calling them "A"s and when, but it doesn't explain why they get to be "A"s and other teams don't.

    Who says other teams don't get to be A's?
