Lost first round pick; Trading Loazia Next Year?

I have mixed feelings about this latest pickup. Not quite sure the plan right now, but I am guessing it will be quite clear in a few weeks. We lost our first round pick in next year's draft which is interesting - didn't think a small market team like us would give something like that up. Though I understand that by this signing we will be trading Zito for hopefully some strong prospects. Then, next year, we trade Loazia for more prospects.

I can see how this may work out. I think the A's have to be careful - but I have an idea on how a plan may work out to benefit the A's.

What do you think?

Note - about trading Loazia for prospects. The reason I say this is because what happened to Delgado. Flordia signed him last year, had him play one year on a heavey backloaded contract, and then they traded him away for good solid prospects. Do you think Beane may be doing the same thing, but actually meaning to do it?
