Yeah, and Lowe was the best of that bunch. Although Benson pitched at about the same level after the deal and was traded for Jorge Julio and John Maine.
I doubt Milton could bring back a similar haul. Milton was the worst of those signings, although Wright was a big-time bust w/NY.
Clement was never the same after getting drilled in the head. But while many on here were clamoring for him, a few predicted that he'd remain mediocre for the most part.
