    Re: The Greatest Baseball Trade of All Time?

    If we're talking about relatively balanced trades that helped both teams, or in the example I'll give, three, then one of the Reds' to consider is the Pinson deal of 1969. Vada to the Cardinals for Bobby Tolan and Wayne Granger. We got a couple of very good years out of Tolan and three solid seasons, including a very good 1970, out of Granger, who made about 225 appearances for the Reds over 3 seasons. The third team to benefit was the Indians, though not in 1969 but in 70. Cardinals moved Pinson to Cleveland, where he played quite well, getting Jose Cardenal in return and he had two very creditable seasons for the Cardinals (especially in his first year). Hadn't seen bob jones's post as I was typing this.

    getting Abby from the Cubs was fantastic for Clarence Jones I think
    Ted Abernathy was a great Red

    What do you think of Abby, west of you??

    He was amazing in 1967, dropped a little in 68, but likely his two years as a Red were his best as a pro... and that's not just because he could eat Skyline regularly

    one of the epic trades was Sheldon Burnside from Tigers for Champ Summers, the reverberation from that trade were felt in Sao Tome

    Burnside made Dave Schneck look like a rock star

    I think the reds once signed Schneck for spring training but he did not play for them, schneck reminds me of Stan Swanson and Clyde Mashore
