"You're probably not going to get as much in return for him now...''
--Billy Beane on Octavio Dotel, who will be having season-ending Tommy John Surgery.
Wow, he traded Hudson and Mulder and did not trade Dotel. As they were spiraling down the A.L. West toilet, the thought of rebuilding for next year, complete with no holds barred trading for the future, all centered around Dotel and Zito. Suddenly they have won three straight games, Chavez is hitting and now they need Zito as a foundation in any drive toward respectability now.
It is called being doubly fucked.
When it rains it pours - the Angels had to endure 1999, the Athletics will have to cope with the '05 Turkey.
