Billy Beane is all in w/ Blockbuster

Billy Beane is all in w/ Blockbuster 


Ken Rosenthal: Lester and Gomes to Athletics for Cespedes

Jeff Passan: Final full trade: Jon Lester, Jonny Gomes and $$$$ to Oakland for Yoenis Cespedes and the second pick in the competitive balance Comp B round.

Tracy Ringolsby: A's haven't won a World Series since 1989. Billy Beane tired of being good enough to make post-season, not good enough to win world title.

Richard Justice: Billy Beane has always said you only have so many chances to completely go for it. He lives for this kind of moment. No one better

I dont see much difference in the As package than JUpton and a good prospect.

The A's can win a WS without Cespedes. The braves can not win a WS without Upton.

Pretty simple really.
