Will the A's have ANY big leaguers in 2012?

The Red Sox are getting Andrew Bailey from the A's and I am all for this move.
But man oh man, will there be ANY reason to go to an A's game in Oakland in 2011?

They shipped off three former All Star pitchers under the age of 28.

Will they have any big leaguers in uniform?

Seriously... my idea of putting the A's in the minors and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs playing in the majors is making more and more sense.

  1. I took a lot of heat for a blog post in which I said Moneyball failed. But the A's are making me (and you) look more and more right.

    Seriously, when the A's and Red Sox played each other in the 1988 and 1990 ALCS, did you really think that, within 25 years, the Sox would still be playing at Fenway and the A's would not be playing in Oakland at all? I wouldn't have believed it. Yet there are the A's, probably about to move to San Jose (and, if the Expos/Nationals are any indication, not likely to be "big league" for the first few years anyway), and there are the Red Sox, looking for all the world like they will celebrate Fenway's 150th anniversary, not just its 100th.
