7.31: Billy Beane on Tyler Ladendorf
A's GM Billy Beane talks about the touted prospect they picked up for Orlando Cabrera.
He's a kid we like Terrell -- or we liked him in the draft in fact we were gonna select him whether -- next -- and Minnesota. I took him in 2008 so. We're disappointed that we lost in the draft and a lot of times when you see kids in the amateur ranks. And you miss out on you have a tendency to fall the careers and so we're -- they're actually quite frank who -- start talking about this deal probably ten days ago. And we could get Minnesota to budge on giving up but Tyler so. Ultimately sometimes these things come out of the and then they they ultimately gave indoor request and and that's why we made the deal he's hit an athletic. Physical kid to play shortstop. And think he's got a chance to be really good player he's got a lot about what -- schism and he's still very young. He's a long ways to go but we're we're very pleased who we're really get a.
