Yep, Beane made the A's even more impotent by trading away his best slugger in the middle of a series at Yankee Stadium yesterday. Holliday went to St. Louis for three minor leaguers. Naturally, the A's looked awful in an 8-3 loss last night.
The A's play the Red Sox at Fenway this coming Monday for four games. The trading deadline isn't until 4 PM this Friday.
