We’re back with Episode 3! It was a busy week for the Athletics post-Winter Meetings. The day after the Winter Meetings ended saw the A’s trade Craig Breslow and Trevor Cahill to the Diamondbacks for Collin Cowgill, Ryan Cook, and Jarrod Parker. Also during the week the A’s tendered contracts to Adam Rosales, Daric Barton, Landon Powell, and Dallas Braden. All agreed to one-year contracts avoiding arbitration. We talk about the trades and contracts and get into why we do or do not like them. We, as always, close out with the Dumb Tweet of the Week.
- Josh Willingham is a Twin
- Four A’s tendered contracts: Barton, Braden, Powell, Rosales. Good/bad?
- Is Landon Powell worth a roster spot? How good is he?
- Showing some Dallas Braden love
- The Trevor Cahill for Jarrod Parker deal. Winners/losers?
- Was Cahill any good? Could he be any better?
- Collin Cowgill: Is he for real? Is he our starting CF in 2012?
- Fautino De Los Santos or Tyson Ross as a closer?
- Dumb Tweet of the Week
