First off, let's stop the "flip Syndergaard" talk. Sandy worked hard to acquire him and he has a very good chance to be a #2 or 3 in our rotation in a couple of years.
Regarding trade opportunities, we need a CF/leadoff man more than anything. We didn't get it in Gose, so we need to look elsewhere. There aren't any viable FA CFs left. (Unfortunately, Bourn seems out of the question for us now.) Before we go after a power bat/corner OF we should be thinking of a CF.
More likely than trading Reddick, the A's would probably be more willing to move Coco Crisp. Crisp is a switch hitter who could bat at the top of the order and be a base stealing threat every time he is on base.
The other possible opportunity for a CF is Alejandro De Aza. A LH batter, not quite as fleet as Crisp, but a better hitter, and younger, cheaper, and controllable for longer.
I'm thinkin' I'd try to get De Aza
