In response to Ice-Cream's comment:
I doubt Oakland needs an outfielder because they already have Cespedes, Reddick, Young (via a recent trade with Arizona) and Coco (who I think Oakland will trade).
Oakland has a surplus of good starting pichers. I think Beane would be willing to trade Anderson for the right players.
I agree, but they might not be in their usual rebuild mode for 2013. They would want some offense or a big upgrade at a position of weakness. We can give them some, but we may need to involve a 3rd team to get the deal done.
Maybe Ellsbury to the 3rd team and that team gives Oakland someone they need for 2013, then we give them Salty or Lava, a pitcher from Tazawa, Aceves or Morales, and a 3Bman for the future in Cecchini. (We may get Coco as part of the deal to take Ells slot and bridge to Bradley.)
if we are getting rid of ells then i would really really want cody ross. we know what we're going to get with him.
