What you said. 92-56, career 3.48 ERA, he's thrown 213+ IP five seasons in a row and he's on track to do it again. Plus, he only just turned 28. Harden's got a lot of talent, but he couldn't last a full season in 2005 and he's already been on the shelf in 2006. Zito's a horse who can pull your wagon all the way to October.
Mind you, that's probably why Beane doesn't want to trade the guy this summer.
