Winter Meetings Day 2: Anderson trade talks, Trumbo

Does Pomeranz come to Oakland? - Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Conflicting reports are swirling about Brett Anderson's availability. Also: the DBacks are preparing to be fleeced again

First, we had this tweet from the morning:


I suspect like myself, the A's wake up every day thinking something different about Anderson. Indeed, Rockies beat writer Troy Renck (one of the better Twitter follows, if you don't already) indicated that the two teams have been talking.


There is also this about the Angels:


Unfortunately, this trade, if it goes through, would be a great win for the Angels.  On the other hand, Skaggs still has questions with the velo drop.  He's not the blue chip guy he once was.

So let's begin the speculation on Anderson.  Assume that Anderson is traded to the Rockies.  What a realistic return for a guy who has a series injury history, but has a repaired elbow ligament and is very effective when healthy?
