Beat: A's pitchers scouted as trade targets: "Tonight's starter, Ben Sheets, remains a potential target for Philadelphia and Minnesota, among others, and Detroit was checking out reliever Michael Wuertz in Kansas City this weekend and in Oakland earlier this month. Craig Breslow is on Detroit's radar, too, but like Wuertz last year, Breslow would be extremely difficult to pry away."
Really? "Extremely difficult"? Someone's proprietary value model is broken.
