- OF Craig Gentry & P Josh Lindblom traded to Oakland A’s for OF Michael Choice & 2B Chris Bostick.
NOTES: Lindblom was most known as the guy traded for Michael Young’s departure from Texas. His departure FROM Texas is no big deal, as he was a bust here. Craig Gentry however was a bit of a surprise. He was clearly the fastest guy on our team, and speed is not something you can coach. While Michael Choice has some upside (and he’s a local boy, from Arlington), it is a bit of an eyebrow raiser. I really liked Gentry, some I have to hope that Choice steps up and is incredibly good. Here’s hoping.
