.Slap Hitter: Harden Trade Looking Even Stupider Than it Did Originally

And it looked pretty dumb then.

Tonight Rich Harden, in the middle of a pennant race absolutely and completely dominated a division rival in a shutout performance. The guy the A’s got for Harden, Sean Gallagher, um not so much, getting battered by the Minnesota Twins in another in a series of rotten, rotten starts. Remember Harden wasn’t going anywhere, not even the disabled list. At the time we thought it was a crap trade. And the .170 averages sported by acquired stiffs Matt Murton and Eric Patterson only add to the tragi-comic summary of the heist.
