Dan Haren Rumors: Wednesday

UPDATE, 12-5-07 at 11:20am: Joel Sherman says Stephen Drew, Mark Reynolds, and Tony Pena are also off the table in the Haren talks.

UPDATE, 12-5-07 at 8:09am: Susan Slusser adds that the A's aren't being unreasonable with Arizona - they haven't asked for Justin Upton or Chris Young. Slusser also notes that Billy Beane wouldn't sit down with the Tigers unless they'd discuss Andrew Miller and Cameron Maybin.  That's when the Tigers turned to the Marlins.  Beane downplayed the chances of trading Haren, but what else is he going to say?

FROM 12-5-07 at 12:09am:

Technically it's Wednesday now, and some of the more rumor-filled threads were getting really long.  So I'm happy to start a set of new ones.  You can check out Tuesday's Dan Haren thread here.

According to Jack Magruder of the East Valley Tribune, the D'Backs are willing to discuss a package of Carlos Gonzalez, Emilio Bonifacio, and Brett Anderson for Haren.  That the D'Backs could spare these three very talented youngsters without skipping a beat speaks to how deep their farm system is.  Magruder's source says the A's could ask for a staggering six players. 

Jose Valverde, Dustin Nippert, and/or Alberto Callaspo could be involved to give the A's some MLB-ready talent.  From previous reports, we know that Conor Jackson and Max Scherzer will not be involved.  Ken Rosenthal had suggested last night that the A's initial request scared the D'Backs off, but he's since corrected that information

The A's, however, want to wait for something to happen with Johan Santana before trading Haren.

Additionally, Magruder adds that the D'Backs have a touch of interest in Noah Lowry.
