(Editor's Note: The trade is for Darren Ford and Steve Hammond) According to this ESPN article , Durham is going to the Brew Crew, probably for prospect Darren Ford and someone else.
I don't mean to be mean, but I highly doubt Durham is going to help the Milwaukee do anything more than fill up their DL further on down the road. This is a good way for the Giants to dump Durham, but it also makes me wonder if there is a market for the A's to sell off some of their 2b? I personally feel that the A's should sign Ellis and trade off some of their 2b prospects in the Minors. Cardenas (who looks like another Placido Polanco to me) looks good but he's in A ball, and I am not that high on Patterson (though admittedly he just may have not had enough time to prove himself in the majors). Plus, Jemile Weeks may not be the answer either. Are there any good prospects the A's could get back for our minor league 2b's? Do the Giants make any sense to trade with (I have no respect for Sabean as a GM, and I think Beane could pick his pocket)?
