glad to see him out of the AL west but damn why'd he have to get traded to the NL west!?

Bit of an overstatement, Haren is a fine pitcher but I still like the Dodgers rotation 1-5 more than the D-Backs. I mentioned this in the MLB thread, Webb and Haren is a formidable 1-2, but it's not like Penny and Lowe are chopped liver. I like Billingsley more than Owings, Davis, etc. And both teams have a wild card in Schmidt/Unit.

Very good track record, however I'd say that the last 2 big moves he made involving pitchers he's 1-1. The Mulder trade worked out very well, even though the big hitter in the deal Daric Barton hasn't really done anything.

Charles Thomas sucks and Juan Cruz didn't do much for them.
I am anxious to see what he does with Blanton and Street. It doesn't make much sense to deal his best pitcher and keep these other guys. I'm certain that he'll deal Blanton, Street, and a few other guys this year.

I am wondering if Ned makes a pitch to get Blanton now ... he has always had interest ...

If the Kuroda rumors are true, I don't see us trading for another SP. We'll see what happens.
