So Matt Holliday may or may not be an Athletic.
I look forward to seeing which prospects he's eventually flipped for.
To go from Coors to the Coliseum is quite a change.
I don't know what to think about this. I feel like the blue chip prospects won't be contributing next year, and there's no way they can re-sign Holliday. They could flip him at the deadline if they're out of it, but will they get more than they gave at that point? It's an odd move.
All that said, I'm looking forward to the A's having a guy who can actually hit next year.
ESPN.com floats the names of Greg Smith and Brett Anderson as the bodies involved in the trade.
Meanwhile, Sweeney is the better hitter today. But on the other hand, he's not a legit CF. All the defensive stats I've seen rate Gonzalez as an excellent CF, while Sweeney is far below average.
I don't think the A's have the stomach to sign Sadaharu Oh.
