The A's get their guy, and if Green is the 2008 edition instead of the 2009 edition, they got a bargain. I'm not so sure, especially about his ability to stay at short, where he's had throwing problems and needs help with his footwork.
Little bit of an overdraft for me. I saw an outfielder or third baseman with a middle defender's bat. If he can play short, it's a good pick. Oakland clearly thinks he can. I disagree. He may play there, but I don't think he'll play well there.
