With Bradley out of the Picture what about Wilkerson?

"A source said the A's and Dodgers are no longer talking about Bradley, with the Cubs having emerged as his top suitor."

Well looks like Bradley is out, and Big Hurt is in..

But no Matter if Beane signs Thomas I think we still need another bat, I know Wilkerson is coming from a down year but he had seasons of .840, .844, .872 the previous 3 years so I think is a good candidate for a rebound year, there are rumors that he's is available and Bowden is looking for a CF (I don't know why because Wilkerson is not a gold glover but he's solid), so we might trade Payton plus one of the pitchers and a good prospect for Wilkerson, his combination of patience and power would be a good fit for this team because he can hit anywhere in the line up, plus he can play LF, 1B and can play CF if Kotsay's back act up

Kotsay CF
Ellis 2B
Chavez 3B
Thomas DH
Wilkerson LF
Crosby SS
Johnson 1B
Swisher RF
Kendall C

Looks pretty good to me
