Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane has been known for having an eye for hidden talent.

Guys that other teams overlooked as they were focused on players who were already making an impact in the league. The man was able to make moves with half of the payroll the Yankees had and still won just as many games, if you haven’t watched the movie titled ‘Moneyball’.

Since 1998 the Athletics have reached the playoffs seven times, winning the American League West six times.

Now this offseason Beane is going to look to make the same moves we are used to seeing him make. Moving right handed relief pitcher Brett Anderson may be a move that could very well happen during the Winter Meetings.

The Athletics have an $8 million option on Anderson that they are going to pick up but he can still be traded.

Anderson posted a 6.04 ERA and was injured a couple times during the season.
