This might push Unknown Team over the top. They’ll certainly hope to beat Division Rivals to the pennant now.

Looks like it’s Oakland. Can’t really figure out how they make this work though.

Heyman says it’s “probably” Oakland. If this is true, I love it, because it means the three most sought after SPs actually traded ALL went to the A’s. Also, it’s great because Lester will definitely hit free agency.

If it’s Oakland, I’d lay money Tommy Milone is going somewhere. C’mon Buccos, grab Tommy!
