    What will be the most memorable trade from December?

    We had a slew of deals, of which contained numerous pitchers, in December of 2011. Which one will have the greatest impact on the 2012 season?

    I accidentally hit gio Gonzales meaning to do latos. I think it's going to be painful to watch the specs I was looking forward to seeing tear it up for the reds in padres uni's but if we can get a sub 3.5 ERA pitcher in the naty it should be a decent trade.

    I voted Gio on behalf of the A's. They got a kings ransom for a guy who I feel will regress.

    I went with Cahill. Arizona has a competitive 1-4 in the rotation, and have really only improved on a surprise 2011. I think he helps keep them contenders and has a nice season

    I think it's Bailey since he's going to the Red Sox, and they're essentially the only relevant team listed. Gio going to the Nats or Quentin going to the Padres isn't really going to change much from those teams being irrelevant.

    I agree that Bailey going to the Red Sox has the potential to be the biggest.
    I like what the A's are doing. They won't be very good this season, but they have stockpiled a lot of talent for their move to San Jose. They could be very, very good then.

    I voted Cahill for the reasons KOZ pointed out. The Dbacks should be favored to win the West again.

    Re: What will be the most memorable trade from December?

    The Latos trade is the most intriguing one to me. This was about the Padres, a team with limited resources, deciding whether to build around the young pitcher with the upside of a rare #1 starter but the downside of injury inherent in a hard thrower or build around the young slugging first baseman and catcher with less volatility than a pitcher but whose peak value isn't projected to be as high as that of an ace.
