RT @MaureenaMullen: Cespedes has played only LF (232 games) and CF (75), since coming to U.S. #RedSox plan to play him in RF, also.
Beane: "With the way the playoffs are set up, you want to win the division and avoid a one-game-playoff situation." He praised #angles
Beane: "It’s really easy not to look ahead to October. Lot of games left
I say that with absolute honesty. There’s no looking ahead."
But on a serious note, Beane reiterated it's not about the playoffs or any team outside division. It's about winning AL West. #athletics
I asked Beane about #athletics, #tigers one-upping each other, he joked, "Wait, We did Samardzija-Hammel and THEN Lester
So it’s 2-1 us."
Beane said trading Milone was driven by need for CF, not Milone's request to be traded. #athletics
