  1. What did they get for Pribanic? I seem to recall this trade, but can’t think of the return.

  2. I believe he was part of the package that got Jack Wilson

  4. I think brett wallace is with houston now. he was not drafted by the A’s, rather he was obtained from toronto via trade in the carlos gonzalez matt holliday deal.

  5. Wallace was obtained from St. Louis (and drafted by St. Louis) as part of the Holliday deal….then flipped to Toronto for M. Taylor and Toronto then flipped him to Houston.

  7. That Seattle draft is/was hilariously terrible.

  8. Uggh… They should have fired Bavasi June 4 instead of June 16, 2008. No, actually, they should have fired him November 7, 2003.

    The M’s sure could use a Jordan Lyles, Mike Montgomery, or Lonnie Chisenhall right now. Hell, Jaff Decker would be great.

  9. Yep. Wilson + Snell for Pribanic, Brett Lorin, Nate Adcock, Ronny Cedeno, and Jeff Clement. Adcock might wind up as the best player in the deal.

  10. Any chance we could get the overall pick number included in brackets next to the round name? Even if it’s just for the first round guys.

    I mean, I could look it up myself, but like almost everyone, I am very lazy.

  11. Well, Adcock might have the best chance to make something of himself, I think, yes–what with:

    1. Ronny Cedeno sucking and Pittsburgh rebuilding, and Cedeno now apparently on the outs with their acquisition of Brandon Wood.

    2. Jack Wilson on the downside of his career and is just a stopgap for the M’s until Dustin Ackley arrives.

    3. Ian Snell performing horribly with the 2010 Mariners–so horribly that he was outrighted off their 40-man roster and went to AAA, then was outrighted again at season’s end and became a free agent, signing a minor league contract with the Cardinals this spring, and then retiring after a not-so-great spring. And apparently, he now wants to pitch again, oy vey.

    4. Of the other 2 minor leaguers acquired by the Pirates in the deal–Brett Lorin and Aaron Pribanic–there have been mixed results.

    Lorin was injured for most of 2010, but will get a chance to regroup in 2011 with high A Bradenton. Pribanic is slowly advancing(he’s at AA this year), but has proven to be somewhat hittable(he allowed 157 hits in 154 IP at Bradenton last year, but posted a decent 3.33 RA).

    It’s probably down to either Adcock, who’s now with the Royals as a Rule 5 pick, or Pribinac, still with the Pirates, as the “best player” in the deal. Still too early to tell, IMO. :)
