    From what I have heard, he isn't ready for MLB. He would probably spend a good chunk of the season in AAA. I feel that he might be a fallback at SS if Hiro doesn't work. In addition, if for some reason we don't have a capable 2nd baseman, I imagine Hiro could move there, and Diaz could play ss. In addition we really don't have much depth at ss between Hiro and Russell. Lastly. if Hiro is great, and so is Diaz, we could trade one for prospects. But, with all of this being said, I don't imagine the A's will be willing to spend big on him, so I don't see him being signed by the A's. But you never know.

    so the gio trade is looking better, he was listed as a PED user in miami... with two other PED users, A-Rod and Colon.

    I am assuming Colon won't be suspended again, if the reports are true. Right? And too bad for Gio, I really liked him.

    That was pretty cool, some good insight on how these moves work behind the scenes.

    Are the Gio reports true? I could never picture him using steroids

    I could. Everyone wants to get that edge to be better and get better, resulting in a bigger pay day. I didn't see that of Gio, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were true.

    I'm interested how Gio's friends in my section think of this news. Can't wait til opening day to find out.

    ahhh... the good ole days

    Jed Lowrie better play well...
    we overpaid like crazy for him.

    Peacock, Stassi AND Carter? granted all three were blocked at their positions but still.
    what happens with Nakajima, Donaldson, Sizemore, Weeks, and Green?

    3B: Lowrie / Donaldson
    SS: Nakajima / Lowrie
    2B: Weeks/ Sizemore...

    we already have a surplus of outfielders for DH...

    If he plays up to his potential and stays healthy, he's easily an AS and we win this trade.

    I'm not sold on Peacock. Plus I heard talk of him coming out the pen. I think Beane is collecting former Redsox top prospects. Reddick, Moss, now Lowrie, lol who's next, the Greek God of Walks?

    Not sure it's about Lowrie playing well. It's all about health with him. If healthy and on the field, he plays well.

    I liked Lowrie's splits for only 97 games. Full season of this guy could be sppecial. Love how he is a switch hitter as well

    Just saw that Landon Powell lost his 5-month old daughter to an untreatable disease in January.

    Sad stuff.
