    Speed: Peter Bourjos (Trade) Carlos Gomez (trade) or Shane Victorino (FA - $ too high?) or, dare I say, Angel Pagan (FA)

    I was being satirical. Seeing I haven't posted in 2 months, I thought an uneducated comment would be the way to make an entrance.

    #Athletics have acquired CF Chris Young from the #DBacks in exchange for Cliff Pennington and Yordy Cabrera.

    No more Chris Young at least next year.

    Two middle infielders was all it took to acquire Young?

    He would have been a great fit. Scratch him off the list.

    His power numbers are going to take a hit in that ballpark though.

    Might make him less attractive in 2014.

    I'd like the Mets go ask the A's what they would want for Coco Crisp. Decent short term answer.

    Chris Young traded to OAK for Cliff Pennington and a not so good minor league infielder. I bet we didn't even try to get him. That's pretty cheap for a solid defensive outfielder with power and speed.

    Other teams should leave Keppinger alone. The Rays need as much help on offense as they can.

    Would Justin Turner and Josh Satin have worked? Because I would have done that in a heart beat

    Cross Heath Bell and Chris Young Off Any Trade Plans

    Both were moved tonight Bell went to the Diamondbacks and Young went to the A's

    Let's get real. The D-Backs got Pennington, an established SS, and Bell, who they look to hold down the 8th inning leading to Putz, in exchange for Young. Pennington may be a light hitter, but we don't really have a comparable. We probably would have had to give up Valdespin or Flores and Parnell. Would it be worth it?

    That's up to the Rays to decide to keep him.

    If they want him, they'll spend the money to keep him but considering they're the Rays they'll probably let him walk because his services have gotten too expensive.

    They usually find another player to plug into those positions just fine and i only mention it because the Mets need an inexpensive RH hitter who could play 1st and 2nd base.

    Keppinger fits that bill to a tee.

    Now that the A's got Young, what do you guys think about Seth Smith? He's a pretty solid and clutch player and really underrated. I think he'd be a pretty good option for LF next season
