The Grill where Billy Beane is all in 639

The last Grill was getting pretty full and it’s looking like a busy day here in Baseball World. For those who’ve been hiding under a rock the A’s sent Yoenis Cespedes and a competitive balance pick to the Red Sox for Jon Lester, Jonny Gomes, and straight cash homey. Beane wasn’t done as he sent ...
