    Obviously you don't know much about pitching. A guy can be a #1 without significant stikeout #'s, (IE Tommy John in his prime) ESPECIALLY in GABP

    The Nationals are pushing hard for Gio Gonzalez, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). The A's and Nationals are discussing a possible four-for-one deal involving the left-hander.
    It will be interesting to see the yield on Gio if this trade goes down.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Are you that short sighted?

    I wonder how much EV was valued by both teams in this deal. I was looking forward to seeing him in a bullpen role and I hope he wasn't just a "throw in" player.

    As far as who won and who lost in this deal, I don't think anyone can tell until 2014-2015. Who can predict if prospects will play near their ceilings or if Latos will turn into a pumpkin? Maybe Santa will bring me a new crystal ball for Christmas and I can start posting Nostradamus style.

    The man on a small mountain tastes victory in the river-sown city.
    The priests by the sea lament his leaving.
    A deft-handed general smiles at his schemes.
    Red men have conquered the World.
