Slusser On Blanton/Street/Ellis Trade Possibilities

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle was recently named Rumor Royalty for the A's.  As part of the feature, I asked her a few questions.

MLBTR: It seems Joe Blanton is a hot commodity, but we're not hearing much about Huston Street or Mark Ellis. Do you expect any of these three to be with the team on Opening Day?

Slusser: I think Blanton gets moved by the trading deadline, at the latest, but probably before then. Street opens the season with the team but potentially could get moved by the deadline if a contender were to lose a closer, but overall, he's less likely than Blanton to get dealt - he's three years younger and, coming off an arm injury, he's not going to bring back as much. Ellis has one year left on his deal, so wouldn't bring a ton in return, plus he's a great guy to have as a role model for young players. Clearly, no one is untouchable at this point, but of all the A's more veteran guys, he's the best bet to be around all year.
