This is classic. A’s owner Lew Wolff was interviewed after last night’s game. One of the questions was about how a team with pitching as good as the A’s have can improve the offense going into 2011. What are the options, Lew? Rent-a-bat? Sign a big free agent? Got any preferences?
“I don’t see a lot of moves. I don’t see the necessity of going out and getting someone for one year.”
What about longer than that? A four- or five-year deal for the right free agent?
“We want to be careful with that,” Wolff said. “I like the fact we’ve
tied up Suzuki and Brett Anderson, but you have to be careful you don’t
risk the team on one person . . . I’m sure Billy will come up with something”
So, no one year rentals. No long term signings. But Beane will “come up with something.”
No wonder Beane spends all of his time thinking about soccer these days.
