The Oakland A's organization did a top notch job today in the acquisition of four top prospects out of the Washington Nationals organization. They have acquired right-hander AJ Cole, lefty Tom Milone, catcher Derek Norris, and another right-hander in Brad Peacock.
We just wanted to inform our fans that we actually offered the A's several Players to Be Named Later. While we think this offer was strong, it was not enough to land the young lefty. We realize after the Chicago White Sox also wrapped an extension with their prized young left-hander John Danks that the trade market for strong, young starters is weakening.
The front office here at MYSTERY TEAM would like everyone to know that we have revealed to several sources that we may possibly be in contention for the Braves righty Jair Jurrjens. So it is our hope that you see across the twitters and rumor mills that MYSTERY TEAM's pursuits remain strong and we will continue to be a force in all trades and plausible free-agent signings this winter.
