Gio Gonzalez traded to Washington for prospects

CONFIRMED BY SUSLU: I have confirmation from the side that the deal is done. Gio to Washington. 1:19 PM - 22 Dec 11 via web

Via Keith Law on Twitter:

Gio to Nats for Cole, Norris, Peacock, and Milone. Love this for Oakland.

MLB Trade Rumors:

The Athletics will send Gio Gonzalez to the Nationals for A.J. Cole, Derek Norris, Brad Peacock and Tom Milone, ESPN.com's Keith Law reports (on Twitter).

Gonzalez is under team control through 2015 and has reached the 200-inning plateau in each of the past two seasons without posting an ERA above 3.23. He'll join Stephen Strasburgand Jordan Zimmermann atop an impressive-looking Nationals' rotation that also figures to include John Lannan and Chien-Ming Wang.

How do you feel about what the A's got in return for Gio Gonzalez?
