Transaction Tracker: Oakland Athletics

Let's take a look at a handful of trades by the Oakland A's from the last couple of seasons. I'll combine them all into two lists, to show who they (really) gave up and who they (really) now have.

P Rich Harden
OF Dustin Majewski
P Ryan Webb
P Craig Italiano
OF Aaron Cunningham

C Josh Donaldson
UT Corey Wimberly
P Fabian Williamson
3B Kevin Kouzmanoff
IF Eric Sogard

Harden was traded along with Chad Gaudin (previously acquired from Toronto for Majewski) to the Cubs for Donaldson, Eric PattersonMatt Murton, and Sean Gallagher. Patterson was DFA'd, then acquired by Boston for Williamson. Murton swapped organizations with Wimberly (Colorado). Gallagher was included with Italiano and Webb to acquire Scott Hairston from San Diego. Half a season later Hairston was returned to the Padres along with Cunningham for Kouzmanoff and Sogard. It's fascinating to see how these trades evolve and link with one another. This set of acquisitions started with the Majewski for Gaudin trade back in December 2005.
