Billy Beane will bring back Rickey?

Rickey back in an A's uniform?

I just heard on ESPN that for the first time Billy Beane is considering adding Rickey to the roster for at least one game so Rickey can retire an Athletic.  ESPN indicated the A's may wait until the roster expansion in September.

How sweet would it be to see Rickey play in an A's uni again? could he wear #35 and then halfway through the game switch to #24 and have both numbers retired?

I don't think I could forgive myself if I didn't make that trip to see Rickey retire.
Ironically, I don't see why we don't get Rickey a shot in the outfield right now...I think he'd be just as good as Stewart as a leadoff hitter if not better and couldn't be any worse on defense.

I don't think anyone else will agree with me, but I would like the A's have another competitve year and not make the playoffs and have Rickey come back than have the A's make playoffs and not go to World Series without seeing Rickey taking the field one more time.

If anyone has anymore info on that, let me know...
By the way, I saw it on a ESPN's First Take.
