    WTF?

    A’s aren’t going to trade a good lefty starter (6.7 WAR in 85 career starts) whose post-injury innings limit will be irrelevant this year, for three AA-or-lower pitching prospects, and only one of which looks like he could end up in the *middle* of a rotation.

      Did you complain this much after the Luzardo trade as well? Burdi has thrown nearly 50 innings in AAA out of the bullpen. Dunning would’ve got called up in late ’18 if not for an elbow strain. Injury is the only reason either of them are available and if Stiever only ends up as a #3 starter I could live with that.

        Apples and oranges. We were looking to get whatever we could for Doolittle and wanted to attach Madson, a negative value contract at the time. Luzardo was a lottery ticket who quickly blew past our wildest alcoholic dreams; if he had done that before he was traded, he wouldn’t have been traded at all.
        Even Luzardo had only had one TJ, and that was in high school. Dunning and Burdi’s cases are more severe, and the A’s are in a much different place than they were when they got Luzardo. We need sure things, not maybe somedays.

        > Burdi has thrown nearly 50 innings in AAA out of the bullpen.

        … split over two seasons, the last of which was three years ago, and then Tommy John Surgery. Since then he’s got an ERA for “above-rookie-level” of 7.66 (6.41 in AA). He has not proven he can still handle AA-level, or that he ever will again, *and* he keeps getting hurt.

        Dunning is fresh off his own TJS, and Stiever looks like a reliever … if he gets over the ‘forearm issue’ (usually a pre-TJS concern) that’s kept him out of the Sox 60-man pool.

        None of these guys, even if the A’s wanted them, are capable of contributing this year, so why would they pick up the phone?
