Athletics & Grant Balfour in 2-year deal

PRORumors is pretty sure this is going down. Bye, Balfie, will miss your heated Aussie intensity & goofy grin.  And in return:
The right-handed pitcher is a Type-A free agent, so the Tampa Bay Rays will receive Oakland's second-round pick (first-round is protected) in addition to a supplemental pick.  With these picks, the Rays will have 11 of the top 75 picks in the 2011 MLB draft.
And that's how it's done.
