This hasn't been on AN at all! According to everyone's favorite journalist Ken Rosenthal, the A's have placed a bid for Iwakuma. It's not exactly clear what the A's bid was or if they have a real shot at posting Iwakuma, but it's exciting nonetheless. It's also exciting that Rosenthal notes that the Rangers' bid may have been too low. This doesn't mean they are absolutely out, but it's a good sign for us. The last thing the Rangers need is any help at all.
I'm not big on a 3B upgrade as McGehee wouldn't be the upgrade that would push the A's over the edge. He is however under control for the next 4 (?) years and is definitely a good looking player. Your thoughts?
