According to Slusser, the A's met with Dunn yesterday.
(Update: This is apparently false.)
According to the A's website, Cust is a non-tender candidate again.
This should cause a stir among the AN faithful.
I know that Cust gets a bigger bang for the A's buck than Dunn would, but I'm just sick of the A's offense sucking. So if getting Dunn meant cutting Cust I'm all for it. Personally, I'd like to see them get Dunn and stick Cust in RF for a lineup like this:
Crisp - CF
Barton - 1B
DeJesus - LF
Dunn - DH
Cust - RF
Suzuki - C
Ellis - 2B
Kouz - 3B
Pennington - SS
I suppose left-handed pitching would be a problem again. And this leaves Carter out until Crisp gets hurt and DeJesus moves to CF. Then Carter can move to LF and the defense wouldn't be so good in the OF.
Dump away... discuss... but don't discuss when dumping. That's just nasty.
