2011 MLB Trade Rumors: Oakland A's Reportedly Shopping Everybody But Jemile Weeks

The Oakland A's have adopted a wait-and-see attitude during the 2012 MLB offseason as they listen to offers from other teams. The A's will listen to offers for all of their players outside of Jemile Weeks, according to Ken Rosenthal.

Oakland's offseason approach stems from the uncertainty surrounding the team's long-term stadium plans. If the A's stay put in Oakland, the team will likely cut down on its payroll. If the A's move to nearby San Jose, however, the organization will look to make moves and contend as its new venue opens.

Oakland is waiting on recommendations from commissioner Bud Selig's blue ribbon committee as they consider their long-term prospects. For now, the A's are unlikely to re-sign their big free agents, namely Josh Willingham, David DeJesus and Hideki Matsui.

The A's have insisted that Weeks is untouchable. The 24-year-old played in 97 games in 2011 and recorded a .303 batting average in addition to two home runs and 36 RBIs.
