ESPN's Rumbling's and Grumbling's mentioned that Beane talked to a number of teams yesterday about Hudson, including Toronto. I can't see Toronto getting Hudson but they could easily be the missing leg in a infamous, Billy Beane three way. What about...
To Oak: E. Jackson and A. Perez
To LA: T. Hudson
A little later that same day…
To Oak: M. Bautista and O. Hudson
To Tor: A. Perez, J. Blanton and either E. Durazo or D. Johnson
Bautista'a been in rumours for a while as has Durazo. With Perez, Adams, Hill, Menachino and McDonald the Jays are covered in the middle infield. This gives the A's an established 2B,and an excellent defensive one at that. Bautista allows the A's to plug their rotation spot in case Jackson's not ready yet.
Just food for thought.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
