Forst on Cahill trade
A’s assistant general manager David Forst on today’s trade:
“The D-backs had checked in with us a couple of times before we got to Dallas and made it clear they were interested in a starter. Once we got together, it sounded like Trevor was going to be the guy that would be a good fit for them. And it was important to us that if we were going to trade Trevor, we were going to get a guy that has the chance to be a frontline starter back, and we feel like Jarrod is that guy. From that point, we went about trying to figure out which other pieces could help our Major League club in 2012.”
