The trade epidemic as it pertains to Justin Duchscherer

Hello A's Nation. I'm new to this site, and am looking forward to posting here. Looks like one of the better boards at SBNation.

Yesterday, in the thread regarding Pirates 3B prospect Neil Walker, I proposed the A's should consider trading for Cal alum Allen Craig. The thread was removed from the mainpage today, and I really am curious to gauge a fan response to the idea; not so much about acquiring Craig, but about the possiblity of trading Justin Duchscherer for such a high-valued, close-to-the majors prospect.

Here is the link to the post from the Walker thread:

It's no secret the A's have staked the future of the franchise on the populace of minor-leaguers acquired for great starting pitchers. Would it surprise anyone if Duchscherer was traded this offseason? Would it be a smart move, or do you all think he is too valuable at this stage, being he is one of the few veteran starting pitchers in the organization?
