Billy Beane is apparently enamored with our boy Chris Burke. Apparently he really wanted to take Burke straight out of Tennessee a few years ago, when he broke most of Todd Helton's school records (!). But Beane drafted Crosby instead. Beane usually has a keen eye for talent, especially when it comes to young players.
Would we want to consider a trade with Oakland? They're still trying to get rid of Byrnes, either to the Mets or the Pirates. We could get Cameron in CF and move Biggio to full time 2B. And keep in mind we have another solid middle infield prospect in Brooks Conrad for the future.
