I believe that the term "difference maker" was used because it isn't a true Ace like Harden.
It could be John Lackey from the Angels or Meche from the Mariners....just my thoughts.
Lackey is a solid pitcher but not a difference maker. Meche has bene hurt a lot, and at this point is no better than what we got.
For our best pitching prospect(by default), Austin Kearns, and EE, I want either Harden, Haren, or Santana - along with Melillo or Kendrick/Wood. McPherson would have to be included in the deal if it involved the Angels.
