and cbs has him 9th

three sources, three spots in the order

the order's just not finalized so none of the sources can be considered right yet

straight from espn insider.....

so, no more worries about that



I wouldn't place to much faith in "ESPN insider" Beane is playing the "Confidence" card, when telling Byrnes he won't be traded..The "A's" don't want Byrnes to worry about playing time, or what team he will end up playing for.. This way he just goes out, an produces, and his value continues to go up... The "A's" will trade Byrnes before the Allstar Break unless Byrnes is needed because of injuries to the other OF's (Oakland is loaded with OF's).. The "A's" will need pitching, and therfor will be moving Byrnes...

Byrnes has decent value no matter where he plays, becuase of his 20-20 potential... This is my opinion, and as accurate as anything "Espn Insider" has to say... ;-7

Heres what my lineup would look like:

Kotsay
Byrnes
Kendall
Chavez
Durazo
Hatteberg
Swisher
Crosby
Ginter

But hey, Im not an mlb manager :-D

If you are interested enough, go look at the mlb.com A's web page because the beat writers usually have the inside knowledge on those things, as they get them straight from the horses mouth.

I wonder if Beane would be willing to move Swisher? I know he is a moneyball player but he hasnt been lighting it up this spring.
