Grant Balfour: GM Beane Hints Club Will Pick Up Option
Update: Athletics GM Billy Beane hinted Friday that the club will pick up Balfour's option for 2013, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Recommendation: "Some things are no-brainers," Beane said regarding Balfour's option. While Balfour surrendered the winning run in Game 2 against the Tigers, the right-hander posted a 2.53 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP, 15 holds and 24 saves for the club during the regular season. Look for the A's to begin their 2013 campaign with Balfour as closer.
