was going to post this in the regular season thread but I guess its time for change
The Oakland A's exercised the contract option on right-handed pitcher Grant Balfour for the 2013 season, the club announced today. The A's declined to exercise the option on shortstop Stephen Drew.
I thought we were going to pick up the option but maybe we'll sign him to cheaper
We need a short stop and I could see him wanting to come back after the season we had
Headlines so far:
-A's trade Cliff Pennington and Yordi Cabrera for Chris Young
-A's exercise Balfour's $4.5M option
-A's decline to excercise Drew's $10 million option
