I like it- I'll wait to see what the prospect gurus have to say- but I think Reed was a very replaceable closer- and I REALLY like what Hahn has done with acquiring a number of young, but major league ready talent.

I'm going to include Viciedo (since he's 24) in the mix- LF, CF, RF, 3rd, 1B- with young/new/exciting talent- mixed in with (holiday optimism) Ramirez and Beckham- only the catcher role to upgrade as far as starting 9 goes.

From rock bottom in July- to make all this progress- and only giving up Peavy/Santiago/Reed- I am very impressed with Hahn-
