Re: Price to Tigers, Beane "had a feeling it was going to happen." Dombrowski jokingly texted, "You have 1 minute to acquire Chris Sale"

This is how trade deadline day played out:
Billy Beane’s A’s traded for Jon Lester. A few hours later, Dave Dombrowski raised them a David Price, and then apparently sent the above-mentioned text to Beane. Strong move.
