    Best Trade With Astros

    I guess this would be an easy one. Getting Jim Stewart was the coup de grace

    Not a contest. Getting Morgan,Geronimo,Billingham and Menke just before the 1972 season.

    I agree...that one worked out pretty well.

    Ray Knight for Cedeno was the one of the dumbest trades in this franchises history. Never understood why they traded Ray to put Bench on third but they did. But It was another one of Dick Wagners great talent evaluations.George Foster was traded 2 months later for nothing.Wagner makes OB look smart.If you can believe that.

    Spilman for Landestoy was not a master maneuver either
