Billy Beane is a smart guy. He's probably one of the smartest guys that I have met. He's probably brewing up something as we speak. Do any of you see anything similar between the Swisher, Haren, and Harden trades? He traded an established player for minor leaguers who are ready for the major league level. Maybe he was thinking that he could get those prospects up in the Majors and showcase them for the next team that noticed them. In the Haren trade, the A's acquired Greg Smith. They showcased him for 1 season and turned around and traded him again. Same thing happened with Carlos Gonzalez. They showcased him for 1 season and traded him. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if that at the end of this season, Beane trades Holliday for some MLB ready prospects. What do you guys think?
