Would Oakland have turned down the chance to get Penny and instead pin their hopes on Jimmy Anderson turning around?
First off Anderson was a number 5 pitcher (at best) so saying he's a replacement for the "rumored" deal for Brad Penny is really just stabs in the dark to create an issue.
As far as the Kullman era it's all of what 36 days old?
Meanwhile shedding contract obligations to middle relievers and backups have represented the majority of the moves on a team that is hamstrung with injuries, yet this is disturbing?
36 days......... and already the rest of the decade is over.
