    Nothing like trading your whole pitching staff more than two weeks before the deadline...

    ESPN - Phillies acquire starter Blanton from A's - MLB


    42-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    I'd like to see the Yankees acquire Greg Smith. He really has some potential.


    Kinnick smells like syrup.

    I will never second guess Beane, he is calling it a year this year, but they will be back, soon...

    It is soooo hard to be an A's fan sometimes!!! I know that they are building for the future, but it gets frustrating after a while to see them continually ship guys out.

    He seems to make the right call every time he ships someone out.

    See: Mark Mulder to Cardinals for Danny Haren

    Mulder gave the Cards one 15-win season and is all but done with baseball. Haren became a Cy-Young candidate and top of the rotation pitcher.


    TRUE & VALIANT

    And you would love if Haren does indeed turn out to be injury prone for his career.

    That's a great deal.

    3 top prospects for a starter who is 5-12 with a 5 ERA. They can find someone who will be as effective as Blanton has this year on their AAA team.
