    The old “let’s give up a bunch of fringe guys for someone useful” strategy.

    An internet classic, to be sure.

      The ol’ “let’s do a sarcastic and patronizing comment instead of commenting something useful” strategy.

      An internet classic, to be sure.

        I felt acknowledging your classical approach was the more appropriate and friendly response.

        But if you really need “something useful”… not only does Cleveland offer marginally less value while acquiring the two best players in the deal you’ve completely ignored the 40 man roster implications this deal would have for Oakland. There is no point in trying to fix this deal, the best move would be to (more patronizing sarcasm considered for this space) start from scratch.

          You can justify it in any way you’d like.

          I honestly didn’t even mean to post this trade. I was just messing around with what balanced on my phone while waiting on something and I mis-clicked.

          Also, I’m not sure what you mean when you say I ignored the 40-man implications. As far as I am aware only Chang and Mejia are on the 40 man.

            BTV and phones are a rough match.

            40 man… Oakland’s is full. Call and Wakamatsu are Rule 5 eligible in December, meaning the A’s would have to risk exposing them days after acquisition OR they have to Waive/DFA two more players. Either way the value gap grows worse.
