Billy Beane must be feeling really smart for trading Gio Gonzalez.
We got 4 good prospects for him. Way too early to judge that trade and we all knew how good Gio was. It doesnt surprise me at all that hes pitching this well this year.
Brad Peacock has potential to be a very good #2
Tom Milone has been very solid and is still 25
Derek Norris has played well in AAA and is the catcher of our future
AJ Cole has the potential to be an ace but is just still 19 years old
I never wanted us to trade Gio but it is too early say we didnt get a good deal for him when 3 of the 4 prospects we got for him havent played a game in the MLB yet.
But Beane must feel great about that Andrew Bailey trade. Josh Reddick has 14 homers so far, Bailey has yet to play a game.
The Cahill trade is looking pretty good for us also. Jarrod Parker has pitched well and is going to be our future ace, hes just 23 years old. Ryan Cook, our future closer who we got from the Cahill deal, has pitched 24 scoreless innings this season so far. While Cahill has been very average this year
