    After a Rough Start to the season, Oakland is looking to build a strong foundation of leaders to propel team development further and hopefully propel the team into the playoffs. Oakland has chosen to trade away starting Shortstop Tony Batista and a number of prospects for a Stopgap Shortstop that will be able to play very good baseball until Bartlett is ready to take the reigns, and a solid Rotation pitcher currently experiencing a bad season and would really benefit from a change of scenery.

    In this deal the Astros pick up a number of prospects and shed the monster contract of Hampton

    As Benefits:
    • Clear leader & Solid obtained
    • Gains better IF Defense
    • Bolsters the Rotation
    Astros Benefits:
    • Dumps a large contract which clears cash for their rebuild
    • Young talent received in return
    • Provides flexibility for future moves
    As RECEIVE:
    $150k in Cash
