Susan Slusser, in the SF Gate, tells us:
It's possible that the A's will pick up Anderson's option and then deal him; there are numerous interested teams, particularly Toronto, which has pursued the A's Opening Day starter for two years and which had a scout following him again at the end of this season.
Here are Brett's career numbers:
|162 Game Avg.||11||13||3.81||36||32||1||195||198||94||83||17||52||155||109||1.283||9.1||0.8||2.4||7.1||2.98|
With his injury history he does seem like the perfect Blue Jays starter. A quick history, in 2010 Brett had a 'forearm strain' that cost him half the season. 2011 he had Tommy John. In 2013 he missed most of the season with a stress fracture in his foot.
When healthy he is a heck of a pitcher, and the $8 million he'd make next year, would be a pretty large contract for the A's. What do you think, would you like the Jays to trade for him? What do you think it would take to get him?
