    Cliff Pennignton traded

    The Oakland Athletics twitter page stated that we traded cliff and Yordy Cabrea for OF Chris Young. Does this mean we're not going to keep Gomes and sign Drew to an extension? Post your thoughts.

    Damn, these moves are happening already and I'm liking them. Cliff was nice, but definitely expendable. Yordy was already traded from Arizona to Florida for Heath Bell. Poor guy being traded twice in a day .

    I think this means that this leaves room for someone else to traded. Gomes loves it in Oakland and I can easily see him coming back if the price is right (I think he'll take a discount, too). I think Beane is going to make a lot of moves in the coming weeks.

    Crisp will likely be traded, but the comparison to gomes was stupid. Gomes is our DH.

    The way it's looking at this point Crisp will most likely be gone. There's no way we're going into the season with Cespedes, Young, Crisp, and Reddick. It's going to come down to Young or Crisp. Our outfield defensively is going to be amazing next year if it ends up being Cespedes, Young, Reddick.

    Looks like the possibility of Drew coming back has just risen largely as well.
    Why in the world is it so important to get the calls right ?

    Dont know too much about young, other than above-average power with a good walk rate

    How is he defensively?

    Beane says what happens next is largely dependent on if Gomes re-signs with us. If Gomes re-signs Crisp or Young will be flipped. If not, they both stay.

    Someone might offer him a sizeable contract.

    Young strikes out like a maniac IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY (so dont try to show me up with stats)

    Regardless, im excited about this acquisition. Good start to the offseason

    Beane doesn't factor emotions into making team decisions. Gomes won't take a discount to comeback; his 18 HRs will get him a nice bump in salary elsewhere.

    I think we will move Crisp or Reddick, most likely Coco since his salary is commensurate with Young's and they both play CF. Young also makes $11 in 2014 with a buyout, so we'll prob only have him for 1 season.

    Moving Pennington opens the door for Inge to return as a utility guy.

    ahhh... the good ole days

    Wow the world series hasn't even begun and we are already making big moves for next year. Sounds like a very good move, it would appear Crisp is the odd man out but the off season has really yet to begin. Interesting
