Oakland's top players "raises
questions,' has scheduled a
hearing in his office today to
discuss the matter with Marvin
miller and officials of the Oak-
l:nd A's, New York Yankees
and Boston Red Sox.
The fast and furious dealing
of Oakland owner Charles O.
Finley and Gabe Paul, presi-

echoed through baseball yester-

Besides Holtzman, the Yan-
kees acquired pitchers Grant
Jackson and Doyle Alexander,
catcher Eltie Hendricks and
minor league pitcher Jim Free-
man. In exchange, Baltimore
received pitchers Rudy May,
Dave Pagan and Tippy Marti-

minor league hurler Scott Mac-
Elsewhere, the Los Angeles
Dodgers acquired outfielder
Reggie Smith from St. Louis,
sending outfielder-catcher Joe
Ferguson and minor leaguers
Bobby Dethrage and Fred
Tinsdale to the Cardinals.
The Texas Rangers purchased
outfielder Joe Lehoud from Cal-
ifornia and the Chicago White
Sox purchased another ex-Fin-
ley employe, Blue Moon Odom
from the Atlanta organization
and sold the Braves catcher
Pete Varney.
A spokesman for the commis-
sioner declined to answer any
further questions "because of
the nature of the hearing."
