Ray Durham is an "A" type free agent, so we would have gotten a 1st round draft pick. Unbelieveable. Thats all I can say. I cant wait to hear KW explain this trade.

BTW, Billy Beane is obviously the best GM in the world. He gets Ted Lilly for an decent 1B prospect, and gets an all-star second baseman for Todd Ritchie II. Wow.

My bad guys, I didnt know they were going to eliminate the "compensation" rule for F.A. at the end of this year. That prospect is still rediculous though. There is NO WAY that Kenny "cameo" Williams will EVER pick Billy Beane's, or any other competent GM in the league's, pocket.

He wasn't trying to,he was dumping salary.

If he was dumping salary, why did he give the A's cash to compensate for Ray's salary. It is like Kenny is the kid getting the **** beat out of him at recess and the bully says, even if you give me your lunch money, I will continue to kick the crap out of you.

That's up in the air.

One source says the A's get the cash, ESPN says the Sox do.

In other words, "Berry/Barry: The Sequel".

At least that is what I'm hoping for. If so, not even Reinsdorf could save KW's incompetent ***. He would be forced to resign, a national laughingstock.

How about trying to actually improve the team? does that ever get into the equation of schueler and his progeny?

Reinsdorf has done a lot of stupid things in his day.

Kw should have gotten a major leaguer for RayRay, not one pitcher in the minors. who knows maybe Adkins will be like Josh Fogg, but with kw running things, that is about as likely as Americans electing osama into office.

Cash Considerations doesn't mean you pay all of the salary. And usually If it is over a million dollars, MLB has to look at it and approve it first, which I haven' heard anything about.

example: You pay them like 1.3 million so that they only have to pay Ray 5 million, so you still dump salary, you then only have to pay 1.3 milion instead of 6.3 millions.

Additional Billy Beane quote-dealing with Williams is what sex with Britney must feel like

WGN-TV avoided it all together. They said "Durham for Adkins" with no mention of cash whatsover.
