I opened this little writing shop just over a year ago on May 7, 2010. Thanks to all of you who have been reading in that time. Let me know what you’d like to see more of.
This deal is looked back on as a prototype rebuilding trade. Tony Pena was the best player – an All-Star catcher- on some very bad Pirates teams in the 80′s. In return the Pirates got three good players, two of whom played major parts on the back-to-back-to-back division winners in 1990-1992.
As always, I am open to suggestions and comments. If there’s a trade tree you’d like to see then let me know.
