A Significant Trade in Tout Mixed

This morning Fred Zinkie traded Dan Haren and Gaby Sanchez to David Gonos for Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Thole. Zinkie immediately released Thole.

This is a classic deal between someone in the scrum at the top (Zinkie) who can dump an underperforming starting pitcher and underperforming hitter to an also-ran (Gonos), who is nearly 60 points off the pace and hopes to catch lightning in a bottle, twice.
