Andruw Jones, Wilson Betemit, Macay McBride, and Trey Hodges were traded as part of a three-way deal. In exchange, the Braves receive Barry Zito from Oakland and Milton Bradley from Cleveland. The A’s received Andruw, Betemit, and C.C. Sabathia. The Indians will receive A’s prospects Bobby Crosby and Nick Swisher, McBride, and Hodges.
No, not really. April Fools! Though it’s plausible, isn’t it? I mean, if someone offered that trade, who would blink first? The Indians might need another major league ready player. Maybe the Indians would throw in Eric Byrnes or somebody.
