    . . . moved the discussion of Billy's wild reconfiguration of the A's (and the Warriors) to purgatory. Fuck that. Need an OT thread where people actually go. Now to the point:

    Billy saving his best work for last? While not a fan of trading Robinson (another top prospect), I am a fan of Zobrist and Clippard. 9 trades this offseason? Crazy.

    Robinson was only the top prospect because he's a shortstop and because Russell and McKinney were gone.

    As far as SS prospects around the league, I doubt he even cracks the top 10.

    Meanwhile Zobrist turns out weakest position into arguably our strongest position without taking away from the major league team.

    Fangraphs currently projects us as a wild card team AND ahead of the Angels.

    Coco's health and finding power in this lineup at the O will be key. Hope Redick can build on last season and not regress back to hitting like crap.
