Now I know what you all are thinking how the heck can Beane swindle Pujols from the cards???? But we all know that the cards gm Jocetty can be had easily as evidenced by the Mulder deal. We got 3 great players for nothing!!!! Mulders arm fell off within two years!!! if we can do that to St Louis than we can do it again.
Now all we have to do is in my opinion trade a few prospects. Even a good one like Darin Barton but i think it will be worth it. The cardinals are looking for pitching this year just like everyone else so I say we trade Halsey as well. He's just not that good so we don't need him but the Cards could use another starter. Then if we throw in a prospect like Shane Komine we don't need the Cardinals would probably take it. They would be getting Barton back and two good starters and we would be getting the best firstbaseman in the game!!!!
Billy Beane, I really think you should make this trade!! It would give us the offensive guy we really need for this team plus we would not be really hurting ourselves for the future. I know Pujols makes a lot of money but if we can trade away Kendall and start Jermey Brown then we can afford it. We also need starting pitching, so if we can trade Kendall and two young prospects we can get Roy Halliday!! Plus I think Kotsay is taking up too much money so we should trade him, Joe Blanton, 2 prospects and a bucket of shit for Carlos Beltran and Pedro Martinez and Billy Wagner from the mets.
Our lineup would look like this:
and our rotation would be
and the bullpen would be
This would be the most awesome A's team ever!!! I really think you should make these trades Billy!!! now I know that this would be kinda hard to pull off
but if theres any GM in the game that can do it it's you Billy!! Please make my Christmas this year a good one!!!!!
