Amongst trades the Reds have made in their illustruous history, where does this deal rank in terms of initial impact/buzz?
I'm sure the Seaver deal was bigger, as was the Robinson one, and the Morgan one, but being that I was a casual fan until about 5 years ago, I have to think hard to understand where this one ranks historically for the franchise. Is it top 10? Top 5? Or just another deal?
We've already got a thread where we debate the quality of the trade, but where does it rank impact wise for the Redlegs? Has the franchise ever dealt two starting position players during the season like this?
