Well, this is a bizarre one

Baseball America rated him the number eighth best prospect in the A's organization after an impressive showing in the Arizona Fall League, following a breakout year for the 2007 second round draft pick.

Desme hit .288 with a 31 home runs and a .365 on-base percentage in 131 games last season, seemingly poised for a Double-A assignment in 2010.

Desme told officials that he is very serious about the decision, something we are all just going to have to accept.
