Yes yes it is his Major League ready he's 28. I don't think Billy Beane would weaken his offense right -- is clearly doing yes but he's all in obviously on pitching and defense. While -- a great rotation and the sense -- as Alex I mean it was payment from and a payment past and report of the deal but how XP is reporting.

So he's in his prime 510 to ten pros right that's right exactly what they need -- I think I'd be pissed at him. Number 52 I wouldn't show absolutely I didn't I started yeah I pianist outside ideas to. I don't know originality is Matt -- kind of you see mouse he not nearly -- self flamboyant is -- is he now is -- and I think like a little bit of that item but not like week.

But -- -- what would surprise me but that storm -- still I vote yes to me how quickly you forget recent history. -- -- -- Lester. Goals were for now. Got right that just deadline deals and this is the least likely place he plays -- Oakland. I'd be more surprised that he went well. Lately less -- Pittsburgh -- went. Colorado hope or -- more pulling issues in Pauley Pavilion. Oakland right now 6641. -- where the best team in the American League. Two and a half up on the angels but they're going to the post season they always go to the post season yet they do they never. Winner in the post season but as has believed he likes and that's crapshoot. Jobs to get in the post season and he's done it again Jonah Hill told me it was locked -- -- Yes you -- the opponent has a lot locking got to admit posts especially short series cigarettes psychological what is the one thing that you have to half in them. A horse or three starters -- -- starters and they just -- Sonny -- and -- last week and doesn't Gomes play. In place of says this enemies not nearly as good and his -- gets right in their before they like a winner is a winner. This is. And it's an a for at Sheraton so far I haven't seen anybody on here thinks.
