I do not think Peterson leaving will have much of an impact on the A's big three or Harden and Blanton for that matter.
Peterson's knowledge has aided in turning Hudson, Mulder and Zito into a collective pitching diety. Thier understanding of pitching combined with the Athletic's state of the art pitching facilities and whomever the A's can bring in to replace Rick will be plenty for anyone to thrive on or under.
After all, would the A's really part with Peterson if they knew it would kill their three headed $38.2 million investment?
