2009 Oakland Athletics

Although the A's have made the two good acquisitions of Matt Holiday and Jason Giambi, we still need more punch. There are over 100 players still out there in the market and A's should act now. I know there is a great group of guys in Sacramento and the other affiliates but we should still try to contend. Face it, reasons for the lack of fans is because of a lack of name players and the will to win. A rebuilding team is not a good one for fans. Billy Beane and David Forst need the acquisition of an outfielder, shortstop, adn starting pitcher. The A's should acquire Garret Anderson, Orlando Cabrera, and Ben Sheets. Each one of these guys provides the type of force that the A's need. I know that ben sheets is a long shot but look, no one has really made a solid offer at him.

1.Ryan Sweeney, CF                                                              1. Ben Sheets
