There is more power there and that's what you are after. Also I tend to advocate selling high on Haren. He typically pitches better April through June than the rest of the season.
Those are most of my thoughts as well, but I'm curious why you don't like the deal. I think Miggy offsets Reynolds somewhat and still provides a source of power which is where I'm hurting. And as good as Haren has been, I think it's a fair time to sell since I have pitching depth (Hanson, CC, Greinke, Pineda, among others). I think value wise, it's pretty close - maybe I'm giving up more overall...but I'm not even willing to say that as Miggy is clearly the best player in the deal.
The reason I like the Wright deal is only because I still don't know when he's coming back. It's hedging my bet. If he comes back strong and soon, I lose, but if he comes back weeks from now and is not productive in any way, I obviously made out.
