Apr 17 - The A’s have almost no hope or expectation of signing Barry Zito long-term, so they are investigating trade possibilities, Newsday reports. Oakland would like to receive three younger, less costly players for the star lefty.”It would be malpractice not to do research,” Oakland GM Billy Beane told the newspaper. “Of course, it would also be malpractice to make a foolish trade.” Beane, however, isn’t overly optimistic about his chances for a Zito trade and indicated there’s more chance they’ll just let Zito leave via free agency at year’s end. “I’m not sure there’s a right deal out there,” said Beane. “It’s going to be difficult to find the right match.” If Zito makes it to free agency, a friend of Zito’s said he believes the Mets and Yankees are co-favorites to sign him. God, I dont know about that. He has "Wash-up" written all over him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
