Rich Harden trade talks including Josh Vitters

We have been aware of these trade rumors for quite a while now and we know that Billy Beane is going to be asking for a lot of quality prospects in this deal (Josh Vitters has been mentioned in many reports). One of the major pieces of our future lies in the wings when Aramis's deal is over in the form of Josh Vitters who continues to tear up the minors after dealing with an injury. If the #3 overall pick in the 2007 draft was the sticking point of a deal to bring in Rich Harden would you do it? why or why not?

After seeing so many of these "untradable prospects" over the years turn into jack ****, I don't think anyone is out of the questions on any deal. But, I agree with HeyHey to the point that it has to be the right deal. Just don't give him away. If they went straight up Harden for Vitters, I say make the trade in a second, but I don't think that is what is being discussed here. For me the future is now and we all know how many "homegrown" 3rd baseman the Cubs organization has produced over the years. NONE since Santo!
The Cubs are dead to me.

Read the book- Moneyball- its a book all about Billy Beane.

Beane on draft day that year was nuts over Nick Swisher. His pick came and he got him. Heres my point give them whoever they want along with Vitters. Oaklands farm system will teach him how to take pitches and lead the league in pitches seen per AB. When Rammy retires, it should be about time for Vitters big payday and we know what that means - bye bye As.

Prime example - Swisher- he was so worried that his good friend Kenny Williams was gonna take him the pick before his. Who has him now- Kenny Williams.

there is not one "prospect" or one player in our farm system who is untouchable. They are all tradebait for better players. I am tired of people over giving this guys who haven't proven shyt in the majors more value then they really have. How long did we hear about C-Pat? Choi? Bobby Hill? Felix Pie? and I could go on and on.

If they want Vitters, and he is the deal breaker, include him. I dont care
