You are playing Henry Clay's game, "Traded for" :)

BTW anyone heard from the Great Speaker lately?

I love the traded for game.

I hated to see Doug Drabek go, since he was the last link to the great Roberto Clemente:

Milt May (member of the 1971 team) - Jerry Reuss - Rick Rhoden - Doug Drabek.

Wow, that is the longest one in terms of years that I have seen? When did we get Reuss (76. 77??)? and lost Drabek in 93.

And only four players too.

Buccos got Reuss for May straight up following the 1974 season, then traded Reuss to the Dodgers for Rhoden in 1979. Rhoden was hurt and barely pitched for the Buccos in the 1979 season. He came back midway through the 1980 season, and then pitched really well for the Buccos through 1986. I remember when the Pirates traded him for Drabek, Fisher and Easley that many Pirates fans complained and whined.

I was one of the fans who cried when the Pirates traded Tony Pena for Van Slyke, Mike LaValliere and Mike Dunne (granted, I was a kid at that time). Sometimes it's great to be wrong.

Rincon is a Pirates Legend. Not only did he get us all of this, but he also was a part of the great Francisco Cordova nohitter.

Oh come on Elmer. You can't put a ball on a tee like that. I had to duct tape my fingers together to keep from typing a comeback to knock it out of the park. :x

What? I was wrong about the Tony Pena trade, I was wrong about McClouth ... I'm glad I was wrong in both instances (and others). I'm not perfect.

You beat me to it. I was going to submit a (thought to be witty) question to Dejan if he thought a Rincon for the 8 guys was a good deal.

Does anyone know if Neal Huntington was with the Indians when the Rincon/ Giles trade was made? It'd be great if he encouraged the trade as part of some grand master plan!
