  • 2001 - Needing to fill the void of a left-handed power hitter created by Jason Giambi’s departure to the Yankees, Oakland trades reliever Mark Guthrie and P Tyler Yates to the Mets for OF/DH David Justice. The Mets had acquired Justice only a week ago in a deal which sent third baseman Robin Ventura to the Yankees.
  • 2007 - The Oakland Athletics trade 2007 All-Star Game starting pitcher Dan Haren and Connor Robertson to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for Brett Anderson, Dana Eveland, Greg Smith, Chris Carter, Aaron Cunningham and Carlos Gonzalez. Oakland is hoping to repeat the success of the proven player for prospects type of arrangement that netted them Haren and others in the past.

  • More on Maxwell...
  • Would like the added depth at shortstop if nothing else, with the massive caveat that Tulo stays healthy enough to play consistently...
  • Corban Joseph is a really interesting non-prospect. Had seven PAs for the Yankees in 2013, only made it back to the majors again last year with Baltimore, and even then only achieved 19 PAs. Seems to have mastered AA, and had a decent 300 PA run in AAA in 2016.
