A’s - Acquire Bradley
Oakland A’s - Acquired OF Milton Bradley and IF Antonio Perez from the Los Angeles Dodgers for OF Andre Ethier.
Losing Ethier definitely stings a bit. However, the A’s were in a tight place as they absolutely have to upgrade the offense and most of the good options are gone now. Ethier has a lot of potential, but the need is now and even though Bradley’s a complete pain, he’s also a complete pain who can hit and play defense in center. Kotsay’s obviously the current centerfielder but almost certainly ends up in left after a disappointing defensive season in ‘05. Getting Antonio Perez is a nice bonus - he’s not a great defensive player, but he’s underrated at 3rd (though rather mediocre in the middle), he’s in his prime and he can hit a little bit. Of course, one could say that about Keith Ginter too and look what happened to him in 2005.
Ethier will start the season with the Dodgers, but they’ll call him up sometime this season if he hits.
The A’s got what they needed in this trade, though they gave up real value. The Dodgers pretty much had to trade Bradley at this point and they got a lot more for him than they might have.
