What are the chances Harden gets moved to the pen?

I love Harden, so i personally would not like the move for his sake, but like it for the teams sake. With Blanton likely to be called up later this year and Redman signed for another 2 years I think harden has a chance to strengthen the pen, and its much needed.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Like I said in another thread that talked about this, it would be one of the dumbest moves I can think of. Which prolly means there is a shot of it happening. Sometimes Managers do desperate things even when all logic points to it being an awful move.

There is no doubt Harden has closer stuff and people obviouslt think he would be a dominant fantasy closer ala Gagne, Wagner, etc.... However the A's and more so Beane are very big on Harden as a starter and have stated numerous times he will stay in the rotation.

Unless Harden has a complete meltdown and his ERA falls into the its time to send you down to AAA zone, there is no way the A's will move him to the closer role. I think there is a much better chance that Deuscher will be moved to closer, even though he is also a starting pitching prospect.

I don't think Harden has the intangibles to be a closer yet. He walks a lot of people which will create many problems.
