I'll give you 3 different lists all three are rock solid if you ask me.
McCann C
A. Gonzalez 1b
Cano 2b
Trumbo 3b
Reyes SS
Bautista OF
J-Up OF
J. Johnson SP
G. Gonzalez SP
M. Moore SP

OR (if you don't want to risk on McCann)

A. Gonzalez 1b
Cano 2b
Trumbo 3b
Reyes SS
Bautista OF
J-Up OF
Reddick OF
J. Johnson SP
G. Gonzalez SP
M. Moore SP


Look you have no need for Aaron Hill with Cano on board. So I'd ditch Hill.
Lohse is a good arm but more of a draft-day value pick.
Josh Johsnon certainly has ace potential and if pitching to his highest capability for a winning team (no injuries inconsistency issues he would be a no brainer here).
With only 2 RP I'd throw your closer back and those can be had on draft day.
I'm rolling the dice on McCann. I haven't advised ANYONE else to keep him, but he's in a contract year and when he comes back I think he'll tear the cover off the baseball. I'm expecting a huge year outta him and would consider him as my "aaron hill" replacement. Though tossing him for one of your stud arms, you could :).

Well Oaks if you can deal for Yoenis Cespedes I would he's a stud OF in his prime what's not to like?

Bro the A's coaches love him to death and with good reason. I'd definitely pull the trigger for Cespedes and you can keep JJ in place of Moore. Bit risky but a big time reward. ;-D

EDIT: I wanted to tell ya I can understand you wanting to trade for a good young hitter in Rizzo and he certainly has potential and I understand you being a little bit worried about AGoz starting to decline, but he has turned into an elite hitter not just a 260 40 homer bopper. I think with a healthy lineup around him (hanley kemp and crawford especially) he is going to put up one more monster season before you should sell high.

1b is one of the deepest positions still in the game. You can easily acquire a solid backup 1b/utility bat (along the lines of a Laroche Morneau etc in the draft that you can easily have some insurance.)

Good luck.

I wouldn't myself. Cespedes and Rizzo are nice, but Moore has the highest ceiling.

I also have someone interested in Johnson and he has the following players...Is there a 2 for 1 that someone sees that you would make out of my players I have been asking about keeping. I would really like to get Adam jones but I dont know if I have enough to get him just by adding someone to Johnson like Hill, Reddick, or something like that

Adam Jones
Matt Wieters

Yes, but nobody in their right mind would trade Greinke for JJ.
