a reliever and starter....
If this happens, I would be sad to see byrnes go, but he has a shot to put up some ridiculous numbers at coors field - and steal bases and have a very nice career.

Byrnes for Kennday and Witasik? Didn't we get of Witasik back in the last 90s? Why would we want him back?
Why trade for Kennedy when our starting 5 is set.

on another a's board, someone's got a source and he said it's a done deal. Not sure yet if Quintanilla is included, there were rumblings he was.

I've been thinking and maybe Beane does trade for those two and trade them to the Yanks.
The Yanks do want Payton and need more pitching and LH pitcher like Kennedy would be good them them.

Well then who would be our extra OF if we trade both byrnes AND Payton away? We'd only have 3 OF's.
To me that would seem like we upgraded what?

What this trade? Did we trade away Quintanilla

the trade in the link I posted above.
Looks like Byrnes for Witasick and Kennedy. Whether Q. or another prospect is involved yet, I don't know. I am hesitant to start the "byrnes traded" thread until I get more information - but when I do, if I do,I will post it.

Yes, I just saw the thread at the scout board.
Looks like it's a done deal.
Though like I mentioned, I wouldn't be too shocked to see both Payton and Kennedy traded to the Yanks for maybe one of their top prospects.

We did trade away Q

CLiff Pennington is a better prospect across the board. Beane dealt Omar knowing that.

I think they did sour on Quintinilla as he hasn't taken off offensively like they thought he would this year at Midland.

Plus, Q isn't an impressive looking player. I think he's 5'9" or something. I know that shouldn't matter but there aren't too many great 5'9" 2B.
Pennigton I think will be a stud.
