The A's have had interest in Youkilis for several years now. I'm not so sure they would want Arroyo, but the thought of picking up the Greek God of Walks gives Beane a ummm happy face.

Spiegs,


Is the headline of your post your OPINION, or have you read something? I'm guessing it's your opinion, because it makes no sense. The A's have Chavez. Why would they want Youk?

People sometimes link Youk to Oakland because Beane raved about him in "Moneyball". But he's got no use for Kevin Y right now, especially after locking up Chavy long-term last year.

Youkilis could make the move to 2B, although they just picked up Ginter for that...

You ever watched Youk in the field? No way he EVER plays 2B for anybody.

DH maybe? Anyway with the way Youk plays he's destined for Oakland, just like Mark Kotsay, Hatteberg, and Swisher.

Well what about 1B? Who do the A's have there? Do they still have superbitch Scott Hatteberg?
Let's go Mets!

I never thought about that (DH). Seriously, if it netted Huddy for the Sox, Oakland can HAVE him!!!!


Billy, call Theo.... NOW! ;-D

Billy Beane only was interested in Youkilis in the first place because he considered him a great hidden value in the draft. When he looks at Youkilis he sees VALUE, and giving up Hudson for Youkilis and Arroyo doesn't embody value.
