HM: Don't know if you visit the site, but I have been visiting athleticsnation.com lately and they are pretty quick to bring to light any rumours out there. Someone mentioned that Milton Bradley is a possibility and that the A's have inquired about him. Here is a link to the LA Times story that just briefly mentions it:
There was talk that the Dodgers weren't even going to offer him a contract, cuz I think he is arbitration eligible. But since Giles signed, they are going to need outfielders....however I'm not sure how long you can keep Bradley and Kent on the same team. Not sure if you can trade for a player if they are arbitration eligible can you? Anyway, not sure if he is what the A's need....but he would improve the defence in the outfield even more, and move either Payton or Johnson to DH, with Swisher at 1st or RF.
Hmmm, I just wonder how long it would take before he cracks...
