Furcal looking for homes in the Bay Area, and Nick Johnson to relocate too?

Furcal visited A's officials at the Oakland Coliseum, toured communities where he might live and had a two-hour lunch with A's general manager Billy Beane.

The A's have yet to make Furcal a formal offer, sources say, but the two sides expect to speak again Wednesday and possibly discuss financial terms.

Also from Rosenthal, is this little tidbit:

Beane might not stop with Holliday and Furcal. The A's have requested and received the medical records of Nationals first baseman Nick Johnson, who underwent season-ending wrist surgery last June.

The teams have yet to discuss a trade, and Johnson, 30, might not be ready for Opening Day. But the A's long have coveted his on-base skills, and could pursue him as an alternative to Daric Barton at first base.

My only problem, is the wrist is supposedly what started Barton's downturn from last year.
