Zito on the way out????

The Zito/Bradley rumor came from the LA Times this morning but has since been debunked by journalists in Dallas at the meetings.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I'm guessing Zito to LA for Guzman and Edwin Jackson.

I believe someone posted in another thread that Oakland was among the higher rated hitting ballparks (even with the foul territory). Not sure about this, thought I remembered reading it here. As Bombers alluded to, the combination of the ballpark, NL lineups and the lineup behind Zito in LA would be enticing.

I don't see them trading Zito for Bradley.....it would make no sense. Someone has obviously heard that the A's had contacted LA about Bradley (which they have), and assumed that to get him the A's would give up Zito. You wish LA Times.

I think that Harden is the A's cornerpiece not Zito

Guzman won't stay at ss, the talk has been moving him to 3rd before he moves up.

Zito isn't moving yet, don't worry. Beane is smart enough to sit back on him until other teams start getting desperate for a top pitcher. Signing Loaiza allows Beane to do this, so there's no way he rushes a trade. This is a different situation than Mulder and Hudson. If Zito gets moved at all, it'll be a deal heavily in the A's favor, and getting Bradley doesn't qualify as that, unless the cream of the Dodgers farm system is included. And even then...
