The A’s are going to trade Andrew Bailey to the Rangers? Really?

14 Comments

Color me dubious, but Brady Tinker of Fox Southwest reports that the A’s and Rangers are talking about a trade involving Andrew Bailey.

Why the A’s would trade their closer to a division rival is an open question.  Of course, the Rangers are said to be involved in intense talks with the Padres about Heath Bell, so maybe this is just a negotiation tactic.

In other news, around 48 hours until the trade deadline hits and we no longer have to deal with weirdness like this.
