Yes, obviously, I got confused between to two - sorry. On the org there's a thread of "would you trade Bruce for Haren straight up?" Tough question because Bruce is an obvious superstar in the making ... but we need pitching .. and I don't think we need Dunn, Hamilton, & Bruce... so, considering we sign Dunn, that makes Hamilton or Bruce expendable.
Would you rather trade:
Bruce + lesser 'spects for Haren
Hamilton & Bailey or Cueto for Haren...
I think when all is said and done Hamilton & Bruce will turn out to have similar production. Hamilton already has MLB success, but is perhaps still more of a risk due to injuries, etc.
However, I think I'd do either trade.
What do you think the A's would ask for for both Haren & Blanton?
