Time for drastic makeover

Trade for AAA prospects: Holliday, Cust, Cabrea, Ellis or Kennedy

Cut from roster: Nomar, Crosby, Hannahan, R.Davis, Chavez, E.Gonzalez, Springer

Clearly, the A's are not competitive this year.  It's time to stop wasting at-bats on guys with no future in MLB.  Time to trade the few veterans that have any value. Buy out the old injured guys.

I will turn on the TV to see Cahill pitch because he has a future -- I can accept poor outings.  But, I can't watch Edgar Gonzalez.  Can't watch Crosby play 1st base (couldn't hit well enough to hold onto ss, now gets playing time at power position?)

Maybe Cust has some trade value after hitting 30 HRs last year.  This guy plays DH or learns to play 1b on any decent team.  If I'm building a team for the future I'm dumping non-athletes. 

Cunningham should play every day.  Maybe give Baisley a shot at 3rd.  Not  worried about rushing guys.  Maybe give Mazzarro, Gray, Cardenas, Dolittle legitimate playing time.  The cream will rise to the top.

The A's really do need to develop/aquire power hitters at the infield and outfield corners to be any good.

Giambi's punishment for leaving the A's for the Yankees is is to hit .200 and be a cheerleader in 2009.
