Thursday Trade Tree: Jay Bell/Jeff King

Two early ’90s stars for the Pirates, both sent to Kansas City as the team tried to shed some salaries and rebuild. (Click to embiggen.)

One trade with four Jeffs, a Joe and a Jay. Easily the high “J” ratio of any Pirates trade, unless they someday spin Jason Jaramillo, Garrett Jones and James McDonald to the Marlins for Josh Johnson and John Buck.

Seriously though, very little return on this one. One year of Randa and some mediocre relief innings.
