The A's could always use more and better young pitching. I could see a very simple package requested like Alderson and Lewis/Winn, or a more complex package that involves several lesser pieces (Neal+Barnes+such-and-such).
Earlier in the year, I thought this type of trade would be possible, but I wasn't for it. Now that the Giants may actually be a hot hitter away from the playoffs, I could get behind it. What do you think?
