Media outlets continue to report that the A's are shopping Haren and want a similar package of players to the one demanded by the Twins for Santana. So, we're out of it, right?
Haren is under contract for the next three years for a total of $16.25 million. Wow.
So while we know that Boston or the Yankees will get Santana, why not try to add an excellent pitcher with a truly excellent contract?
Would you trade Adam Miller, Trevor Crowe, and Paul Byrd -- while eating half of Byrd's 2008 contract? I'm starting on the extreme end here.
