Gentry Traded

  • 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.
