I've been fairly unimpressed with the last few Beane trades. This more than makes up for those. Insane.

Reportedly came down to the Nats and Red Sox. Glad the Sox weren't the ones getting fleeced :-°

The Sox fans are cracking me up on this one. I saw this on mlbtraderumors:

Cahill was an absolute bargain.

I'll take this moment to add Brad Peacock to my 2012 draft list.

Good move for Gio as well. Gets away from the Rangers and the Angels. Now has to face the big hitters for the Braves, Mets, Phillies and Marlins.

The A's are going to look very interesting in a few years.

Cahill's overrated then. However this is an amazing trade for the A's. WOW!

Curious as to why you like Peacock now more than before he was dealt...

The A's won in this deal IMO, but I like the move for the Nationals too. They will certainly compete this year, and this deal sets the table for 2013+

They have a very solid group of youngsters in Strasburg, Geo, and Zimmerman. All of these guys could be #1 or #2 type SP. Zimmerman playing a whole season at 3B would help tremendously as well. Now they only need Werth to step it up...
