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?
Bruce straight up for RICH HARDEN. Not for Dan Haren. Bruce is a premier prospect. I'm reluctant to shop Hamilton until we see a whole season from him - he definitely showed flashed of greatness this year.
I would flip Votto or Cueto and the A's choice of a second prospect (other than the Reds' top 4 guys) for Dan Haren.
