Athletics trade rumors: Asdrubal Cabrera and Stephen Drew on Oakland radar

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

It is early in Hot Stove season, but at least we know the Athletics are not going to completely ignore the free agent market at shortstop this year, according to a report from Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, reporting from the General Manager Meetings in Phoenix.

Heyman also notes that Hanley Ramirez is "presumably out of Oakland's price range." A good presumption. In his Top 50 free agents list, the surveyed anonymous agent predicted Ramirez would get a six year/$122 million deal, the general manager predicted five year/$90 million, and Heyman himself guessed five year/$105 million.
