    Nothing stupid about it. It's football, he's trying to make a play. Bang bang, nothing on purpose there.

    Incidental contact on that Ziggy hit. He always dives and tries to make the tackle. It's just that he's a big boy, a beast if you will & their helmets happened to hit. Ziggy leaped after him like...

    Too early to tell. Both have had what, a combined 400 AB's in the majors ? Really, a cup of coffee and that's about it.

    With Oakland, they'll get their shot. Semien will have the initial shot,...

    Not at all. 4 pretty darn good prospects. Beane usually trusts his scouts and has had success in doing so. Beane wouldn't pay Samardzijia the type of money he's looking for, so to get 4 quality...

    Pretty darn good haul for Beane when you figure he's trading a player on the last year of his deal.

    The 18 yr old could be better than all 5 players involved when it's all said and done. Legit prospect. Knowing Billy, he'll flip him in a package for somebody he needs at the deadline.

    Should've never been traded ? It's a team game, not a one man show. Beane isn't done with this roster by a long shot.

    Nobody ever knows what Beane is doing. Yet when he's in so called rebuild mode his team wins 90 + games for him. Tough to doubt him. He knows his stuff & trusts his scouts.

    Or maybe Lawrie gets traded when coming off a career year for 2/3 other prospects. Beane won't pay him so he'll flip him for more prospects and keep trusting his scouts.

    He only did that 1 year though. Who knows what he'll bring next year.

    The biggest 'if' in all of this is Lawrie. If he can stay healthy, he could possibly be a tad below Donaldson's production. ...

    Not at all. Ok, they're 24. All of them have 4/5 years on Donaldson, and 1 is 18. It's a great haul for Oakland.

    Now if you're rebuilding and can get 4/5 youngsters for Encarnacion like Beane did for Donaldson, jump on it. You're in a different position than Beane and his organization.
