Kansas City has said they are looking for some SP in the off season. Good news for us, since we have a surplus of SP to deal. They list a few players that they're not willing to give up, but most of them are fair game.
We have a lot of depth in our starting pitching staff and I would be fine to get rid of some good to great players for some good to great hitting, because I know there are plenty of other good to great SP on our team to take their spots in our rotation.
Here are KC's players I am interested in:
Melky Cabrera - OF
Alex Gordon - OF
Billy Butler - 1B/DH
Jeff Francoeur - OF
All of those players are in our price range. Some may be FA or going through arb this year, but let's just assume KC re-signs them.
Personally, I think the spots we need most are 1B and 3B, so Butler would be my main target and he would definitely be an improvement. As for the other players, I would love to have them to help make our outfield even better. Especially when Dejesus is gone and if we don't end up resigning Crisp and/or Willingham.
What type of realistic trade combos would you present to KC if you were Beane?
Which KC player would you like to see on the A's?
