Which Team Would Have Been Better

Before I begin, I should first state my bias - I think the Hudson and Mulder trades were the dumbest trades in the history of baseball, which is ironic when you consider the man who traded them is probably, honestly one of the best tradesmen in the history of baseball.  Having said that, I wanted to offer this though/comparison into the minds and hearts of you, my fellow A's fans....which starting unit would you have preferred?
