- RHP Dan Haren from the A's for OF Carlos Gonzalez, LHP Brett Anderson, OF Aaron Cunningham, 1B Chris Carter, LHP Greg Smith and LHP Dana Eveland.
- RHP Chad Qualls, 2B-OF Chris Burke and RHP Juan Gutierrez from the Astros for RHP Jose Valverde.
- RHP Billy Buckner from the Royals for infielder Alberto Callaspo.
That's 5 of the the top 10 prospects in their organization gone, but they get one of the best young pitchers in baseball. He was solid on a bad A's team last season & should be quite a tandem with Brandon Webb.
