Got Mulder?

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Believe it or not, I was going to bring this very topic up in coming days. I thought Lilly might be a possibility, but more realistically, I thought Mulder might wind up being the guy because I imagine there won't be too many teams placing much stock in him. And if Mulder gets his injury fixed, he can be one of the most dominating pitchers in the game, especially with the A's infield defense behind him. My one big concern with Mulder was that he became a head case before he left the A's and his career with the Cardinals has been quite up and down. But the A's wouldn't need him to be an ace. They'd essentially need him to fill a role of third or fourth starter behind Harden and Haren. To me, this is exactly the kind of deal Beane looks for because of the A's budget issues. And Mulder was his happiest with the green and gold. - Blez]

Susan Slusser mentions the possibility of Mark Mulder coming back to Oakland:

"With Zito a virtual lock to leave, the A's are likely to look for a starter in the offseason, probably a left-hander. Two possibilities, both of them former A's: Mark Mulder, who is still recovering from shoulder surgery, and Ted Lilly, who is a free agent and who has said several times that he'd like to come back to the Bay Area."

I think this is a good idea, if we can get him for cheap.

Low risk/High reward!
