The most insignificant trade I can remember(a non Reds one albeit with a Reds flavor) was when the Rockies dealt Pokey(who they had just acquired from the Reds) to Boston for Scott Hatteberg.

Both players were then non-tendered by their new teams and became free agents within a few days. Of course, Hatty went on to Oakland and Pokey to Pittsburgh.

Traded Tony Mullane to Baltimore Orioles in exchange for Piggy Ward and $1500.


Pile O' Cash was coming to Cincinnati long before Carl Lindner knew what a banana looked like.

I'd say that qualifies as being pretty insignificant. I'd forgotten about Michael Coleman.

pat pacillo was again the product of superior scouting, what an exceptional pick, hotly contested, the peach of the great seton hall pitching staff.

you might have it, it even beats the acquisition of Clarence Jones from the Cubs, and it supercedes the behemoth acquisition of Bill Short from the mEts

Guy Hoffman is the Chris Michulak look alike, good for plenty of starts with the Reds. Who can forget the tsunami that was created when the Reds obtained Jim Dickson from the Colt 45's. I still remember exactly where I was when Jim Duffalo was acquired.
