Rumor: Damian Miller to the A's

Postby ramble2 » Fri Dec 19, 2003 6:11 pm

Okay, so it may not be the most interesting rumor, but it's a rumor nonetheless.

So let's see, the A's acquire Barrett from the Expos for a PTBNL, then trade Barrett to the Cubs for a PTBNL. Rumors on 680 KNBR SF Sports Radio are that the Cubs will ship Damian Miller to the A's if they sign Barrett (I guess he's up for arbitration?).

Miller? :-P

Not sure what Beane is doing on this one. My guess is that he slipped into the middle of a Cubs/Expos deal that was brewing so that he could acquire a catcher. Or something. Who knows.

Fantasy-wise, not too much news here. Miller drops even lower, if he was even on anyone's radar anyway. Barrett might be worth a look, but let's face it, we're talking late-round material here.

If the Cubs don't get I-rod, I don't know that I want Miller gone really. Though he's almost an automatic out at the plate, he has a years' experience with the staff -- who will carry us if we indeed make the playoffs again.

I don't want Javy Lopez for 3-4 years. I'd rather have Barrett as our starting catcher.

They need to fill the holes in the lineup. Barrett doesn't help that.
