I don't like this trade because I don't like Erstad.

He has a marginal OBP of .350 - better than Singleton, but not that much better. No way do I trade a pitcher to rent him for one year.

On the other hand, Giles walks about 100 times a year and has a career obp in excess of .400. Plus he's signed at a reasonable price long term. He's the far superior choice.

Man, how dissapointing.

You can make a case to overpay for Giles, but....Erstad.

I had dreams of Giles hitting behind Frank and Maggs with Konerco protecting Giles.

God this SUX im going...

I agree completely, Giles is the kind of guy you give up four years for not Erstad. Especially since Erstad will be a free agent next year while Giles is signed to a very reasonable contract.
