    Outfielders/first basemen for pitchers?

    The discussions revolving around WMP for Arroyo trade has me trying to remember pitcher for outfielders/first basemen in the last ten years.

    In this day and age, who trades a very hard to develop commodity, starting pitchers, for a very prevalent commodity, outfielders or firstbasemen?

    I can think of:
    Oliver Perez and others for Brian Giles
    Ricardo Rincon (reliever) for Brian Giles
    Dave Burba for Sean Casey

    I know there must be more, but my mind is drawing a blank. Anyone have a link to trades or not have long term memory loss?

    Dave Parker for Jose Rijo (and Tim Birtsas).

    Of course, I guess you could say Rijo was more of a "project-type" at the time.

    ETA: May not exactly qualify as "this day and age" depending on your perspective.

    ETA part 2: Guillen for Harang and Valentine?

    Allow me to throw out one of the worst trades in baseball history:

    January 10, 1991: Glenn Davis traded by the Houston Astros to the Baltimore Orioles for Pete Harnisch, Curt Schilling, and Steve Finley.

    Well...

    Billingham (p), Morgan, Geronimo, Menke and Armbrister for Lee, Helms and Stewart.

    Everyone always assumes Morgan was the biggest part of that deal. At the time it was probably Billingham that Howsam was most after.

    (Ok..wasn't in the last 10 years...but I can't remember those recent things anymore)

    I can't believe I didn't think about this before.

    Sean Casey to the Pirates for Dave Williams.

    I must have been trying to block that one out.
