ARZ = Athletic's Rumor Zone


  Here I go doing a fan post where you can post all the rumors you hear daily about who the A's will trade or have been in trade talks with. 

First up..3b..So far I heard runmors about Alex Gordon, Chone Figgins,  Miguel tejada, Josh Fields, and Jamey Carrol.  Adam Kennedy is likely favorite here with rumors since the A's have talked to his agent.  I like the fact of Alex Gordon on the buy low high upside which would cost the A's 1 of their catching prospects and more.  Jamey Carrol has been consistent in numbers and is steady at third could be a good stop gap until Wallace is ready.  Figgins will be out of the A's price range and Tejada is still to early to figure out.

  SP..The A's still want the Duke back.  Looks like Tomko will walk.  One player that hit the market the other day is Braden Looper to me would be perfect fit for the A's.  Not a high cost FA and is a good innings eater pitcher who may need a park like Oakland to give him good numbers again but I have heard no word the A's are after him.  Mark Mulder is being pursued heavy by the Brewers so his return is less likely.

SS...Nothing looks like Pennington's job

OF..  Nothing been said but I would not rule out Beane bringing in a power hitter here.

DH..Thome rumor is here if the A's let go of Cust.  I wouldn't mind Matsui to get fans in the seats but he is rumored to want to comeback to the Yanks badly.

  Anybody else heard anything??  Post the rumors you hear here and we can create to talk in this slow time for baseball.
