Thursday Trade Tree – Steve Buechele

With all the games I’ve been attending I’m going with a small tree this week. Twenty years ago the Pirates traded for Steve Buechele.

Buechele was a nice pickup from Texas but he never hit for the same power in Pittsburgh. I remember being surprised when they traded him to Chicago the next season because it seemed to put a good sized hole in the lineup. Danny Jackson was a capable starter down the stretch for the last Pirates playoff team.
