    A's really need a center fielder. Kotsay is brittle. If they'd go for Milledge and Plefrey for Blanton and we get to keep Gomez, Heillman, and Maine, I'm down. Haren will be too expensive. Blanton is a bulldog.
    Aside, Jeremiah was a bullfrog and a good friend of mine.

      Beane likes to make a lot of trades. He is pretty good at evaluating talent, but he is far from perfect. He gave Hudson to the Braves, gave away Eric Byrnes, and traded both Bonderman and Carlos Pena(in the same deal) to get Ted Lilly. Lucky for us he is about the only one who still values Milledge as top young player. I could see him pulling off a bad deal~~~or maybe it's just wishful thinking.

        I concur with assessment.
