It may not be before the season starts but I'd imagine someone has to be moved and I'd imagine that someone is Dan Johsnon,or Sweeney gets delt at the deadline if he stays healthy. I still think Barton will be the A's opening day 1B and Cust will get the nod at DH. With the way the A's were injury plagued last year maybe Beane is just taking an insurance policy to insure he'll have bodies on the field.
I thought that Cust was going to play in left field, that way both Johnson and Barton could see valid AB's? It seems to especially make sense since Oakland's only potential starting outfielders are Jack Cust, Travis Buck and Carlos Gonzalez, and I don't see Gonzalez making the opening day roster.
1B-Daric Barton/ Mike Sweeney
CF-Ryan Sweeney/ Carlos Gonzalez
seems to make the most sense
