Ordinarily, this would qualify stunning news —- the A’s dealt Nick Swisher to the Chicago White Sox this morning for three relative no-names — but anybody who has followed Billy Beane through the years knows nothing is ever stunning with him.
Not sure why the A’s would make this move, so looking forward to what Beane has to say during a 1 p.m. conference call. The players the A’s received — outfielder Ryan Sweeney, left-handed pitcher Gio Gonzalez and righty Fautino De Los Santos — fit the A’s stated intention of getting younger, but only time will tell if the A’s have gotten more talented.
Going to be a long, long summer in the House that Al Built.
