Not a fan of the Jeremy Guthrie trade...

This afternoon, I asked people's feelings on the Jeremy Guthrie tradeJeremy Guthrie trade on Twitter, and from what I got, people hate itpeople hate it. I'm a bit confused why this trade happened nowtrade happened now (despite Guthrie's arbitration hearing) and what the team got in return.

from what I have read online Rockies fans are glad to be rid of Hammel, but they think highly of Lindstrom. I know nothing about either but if Lindstrom is good in the pen than this trade should be useful this season
