To the poster who said it's Colangelo, he is no longer with the team.
To the poster who said Hairston is the best 2B option, you obviuosly haven't seen him play 2B. I have, it's painful.
When a team sucks bigtime and doesn't want to stay in last place and has numerous needs, it sometimes overpays to show they are not rebuilding but, for the lack of a better word, reloading.
Dbax overpaid bigtime for Williams and Bell to try to attract free agents.... then...Randy Johnson came...then.... World Series.
They deperately need a cleanup hitter. AZ's doctors said 10% chance of Sexson reinjuring shoulder. Sexson wants all years guaranteed. AZ wants out if he goes down again. AZ's doctors say Glaus OK.
With Glaus, better chance for Finley return if the Dodgers don't break the bank and better chance for a #2 starter to sign.
Why should the Dbax care how much the Dodgers or Yankees have to pay for Beltre and Beltran?
As with many teams, good moves.....
Luis Gonzalez for Karim Garcia
Danny Bautista for Andy Fox
Durazo for Dessens
Schilling for flotsam and jetsom
