I think it would be huge if the a's could trade for Matt Holliday....Some might agree or disagree but a power right handed bat in this lineup is just what we need..
1. The A's need right handed pop and Holliday fits the bill perfectley
2. We need a feared hitter in the middle of the order.
3. He is a good and we need some good players not 4A ball players
4. He will sell more tickets which means more money to spend
5. You will excel in the AL West making our games better and possibly a shout at the wild card
Lineup with Holliday
1. Mark Ellis 2b
2. Ryan Sweeney RF
3. Matt Holliday LF
4. Jason Giambi/Jack Cust DH
5. Carlos Gonzales CF
6. Cliff Pennington/ Gregorio Petit/ Bobby Crosby SS
7. Eric Chavez 3b
8. Daric Barton 1b
9. Kurt Suzuki C
Now doesnt that look like a strong lineup.
The Question is though what would Billy give up to get him since were rebuilding.
I say send Huston Street and others
