That's big! 8-o Good news for Oakland.

I bet this means Giles/Kendall are going to the Padres!

Sounds like it might be a good deal for the Reds too. I like Aaron Harang a lot, and I think he'll be a really good pitcher some day in the not so far future. I don't know much about the other two guys though.

what kind of effect will that have on his fantasy stats? i traded for him like a week ago or so. A's have some nice bats ready to awaken now. But, he is in unfamiliar towns, stadiums and facing unknwon pitchers.

You must not want him too bad. :-D I wouldn't give up Guillen for that. :-D Now in a keeper league, it might be a different story. :-?

last chance to try and steal away zito, hudson and mulder (doubtful mulder can be had due to his awesome recent starts) before they all go on a win-streak bonanza.
