A Milton Bradley Game

By now, everyone knows that Billy Beane was for bat at the recent Winter Meetings. And while he made public that he was willing to take a on the oft-injured and aging Big Hurt, I was hoping he'd take an even bigger and trade for a guy known more for his past , than for his sweet-swing and defensive prowess.
After the Macha debacle, I just wanted Billy to . I wasn't asking for Giles or Konerko. I didn't want Billy to give up Zito for Thome or Howard. I just wanted him to add a cheap, but effective, bat that could give some protection to everyone's favorite Gold Glove. He wouldn't have to give up much or even add a lot of payroll, he just had to take that big .
And wouldn't you know it, Billy pulled the trigger. Yesterday, he traded for the and I couldn't be happier. I'm more giddy than a .

Now I can only hope and pray that Ken Macha is the target of Uncle Milty's next . And maybe if we're REALLY lucky, Jason Kendall will get caught in the . I wouldn't blame Milton if he went off on Macha. All he'd have to do is say and that'd be good enough for me.

So, welcome aboard, Milton. I can't wait until you're all healed from your latest and back on the field...strangling Ken Macha.

I don't care what people say about you Larry or about the annoying frigging layout.

That was brilliant.

Very well done rumvee. Though I couldn't quite make out the Princess game... but awesome nonetheless.

Hey quick question, do you think there will be a trade with the Yankees if we sign Thomas?

Something like Kotsay or Payton/Scutaro/Kennedy for Wang/Prospect ?

So Swish stays in the OF and Johnson stays at first.

Well, as long as you got the princess part of it, you pretty much got the gist of it. IsoP

I think Billy will make another move, regardless of whether or not he signs Thomas. I think it's just a matter of time. I haven't heard definitively when Bradley will be back, but if he's ready to go by Spring Training, I'd imagine that Payton would be moved pretty soon. If he's going to miss a month or two, I'd expect Payton to be moved before the deadline. Kotsay's got that no-trade clause, and Billy loves him, so I doubt he's going anywhere.

And if Billy were to make a trade with the Yankees, I don't think he could get Wang, Cano, Hughes or Duncan. I just don't think Cashman will trade 'em. What's more likely, I think, is a three-way deal that involves Pavano.
