7.31: Billy Beane on Brett Wallace
A's GM Billy Beane says they are looking forward to seeing Wallace in Green and Gold for many years to come.
But I was a kid that we so we know on waivers and high -- you know -- a local kid here. And we really were torn we almost took him in the draft -- shooters on the state and you know my director of player personnel as Billy Owens who lives in Arizona so he keeps a pretty close side and the Arizona State kids. And from his freshman year on he kept saying this is a guy this is a guy. And and really in last year's draft to -- came down between -- Walston your mile weeks I was a kid that we've always really liked. And I felt terrible because they're red after the draft that his favorite team was the case. As it should be. And his favorite player was -- Chavis though. We were lucky to -- get a player that has moved so quickly is that well thought of in the industry and and he's what we need he's a big bad -- order he's already in AAA won your other draft and we still pretty lucky that we were we -- look choir -- and we were looking forward to having him play here in Oakland for a long long time.
