Infield Depth and Marco Scutaro



I don't post here often as I am more of an akward NRAFer from Vermont lurking in the corner waiting for the right opportunity to jump in the mix,so time like the present. The A's seem to have a plethora of outfielders and pitchers but with the loss of Pennington and Stephen Drew not likely to resign it seems we don't have much depth in the infield. I saw the article Nico posted about bringing in Asdrubal and would love to see him on the A's, but what about Scutaro? I was ALWAYS of the opinion that Billy Beane was crazy to have traded him in the first place. Why he ever thought that it would be better to keep Bobby Crosby around over Scutaro was something I couldn't and still can't fully comprehend. Who did we get for him again? Kristian Bell and Graham Godfrey? I am of the opinion that we make a serious offer to Marco for at least a 2 year contract. He can play 2nd and ss and 3rd if he has too and he has a great bat especially when it counts. His NLCS MVP status may bump the price on him a little but he still could come cheaper than resigning Drew. Even if we don't go after Scutaro we sorely need infield depth so are there other people you would like to see Beane go after or should we focus on Scooter?
