Millwood, Westbrook, or _____?


If Brett Anderson is indeed out for the year, the A's may need to acquire an SP if they hope to remain in the AL West race.  A likely trade acquisition would probably have to meet this criteria:

a.)  Pitches for a team that is already out of the playoff race (less than a 5% chance, according to BP's daily updated playoff odds page). 

b.)  Healthy and effective

c.)  A pending free agent (less costly in terms of prospects, because they provide only 4 months worth of return on the investment)

As such, the two prime candidates to kick the tires on at this point are right-handers Jake Westbrook of the Indians and Kevin Millwood of the Orioles.  Or is there another candidate you prefer?  Please vote in the poll below.  Then, if you like, create your own trade package.
