Reactions to Yoenis Cespedes trade

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser What a stunner of a morning, with the A’s sending the wildly talented slugger Yoenis Cespedes to the Red Sox for ace Jon Lester and Petaluma’s own Jonny Gomes, then trading Tommy Milone – who’d asked to be dealt – to the Twins for Sam Fuld. Gomes, who played for the 2012 A’s, felt he had unfinished business here, and he told me this morning, “I’m coming back for my ring.” There are a lot of ways to look at these deals, and at a quick glance, you might wonder why the A’s are dealing one of their top power hitters to obtain something...

A’s in market for outfielders

Many folks on the A’s weren’t thrilled when the team let go of Sam Fuld early in the season, and wouldn’t he be a good fit right about now? The A’s soon will announce the findings of Coco Crisp’s MRI of his troubled neck, and Craig Gentry is on the disabled list with a broken hand.

Terry Ryan gets good value for fourth outfielder. Earlier this morning, Oakland traded Yeonis Cespedes to Boston for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes.

Milone, 27, has made 16 starts for the Athletics this season, posting a 3.55 ERA in 96.1 innings. He's under team control through 2017, and will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. Fuld, who hit .274/.370/.354 with the Twins, heads back to the team that let him...

Roster fallout: what happens now that Fuld is out and Milone is in?

Here's what happens to the Twins roster as a result of the trade. Outfield With the departure of Sam Fuld, the Twins are once again without a legitimate center fielder on the roster. This seems to spell out, in no uncertain terms, that Danny Santana will continue to get time in the outfield. Indeed, it seems like Eduardo Escobar is once again the team's backup in center.
