A's also give up their competitive balance draft pick.

Don't we need a left fielder? Very strange move, someone needs to hit

Well... there went their shot at a World Series. Thanks Beane for trading not 1 but now 2 superstar every day players.

Total shocker, but I see how it makes us better this year.

I kinda got the Russell trade.

But Cespedes was the only guy who actually could hit in the playoffs.

This is like me taking all of my retirement savings and spending it all.  Tonight.

This move will either get Beane into the Hall of Fame or he'll become a punch line.

And glad we didn't have to empty the farm.

Bats. We need bats.
Our problem in the playoffs is we have problems hitting the other teams first 2 starters.

Dumb. I'd take Milone over Lester, whose trade value is up only because he's having a career year.

When does Cespedes' contract end? I understand he can bolt after next year (2015)...

I figured yesterday when it was obvious the A's were serious about Lester and prospects were not there that we might see an everyday player go, but I figured it would be one of the catchers.  Cespedes?  Don't we need that guy?  Aren't we something like 25-35 with him not in the lineup?  I have been all for a serious World Series run since 2000.  But this team just got a lot less fun to root for.

I guess this makes Vogt an everday 1st baseman now.

Lester is definite rental - giving up Cespedes for a rental hurts.   So we have now traded away the two most talented everyday players in the organization (Russell and Cespedes) in the space of a few weeks.  noidea
