    Having a top 100 prospect in your system is rare. Most teams only have a few. Why in the world would you leave any top 100 prospect unprotected in an expansion draft? You only have to leave three on your 40 man unprotected and that includes utility players and overpaid veterans. If these expansion teams got a top 100 prospect from every team they'd be tickled pink

The Indians could have had him for nothing, but their GM (either Hank Peters or John Hart--I'm not sure which one was in charge at the time) decided to work out a deal with the Reds as a courtesy, and the Reds received Tim Costo.
    That is correct however I don't know that it was charity that led to Costo being offered. My guess is the Indians didn't think he'd survive the waiver claims in order to get to them

    Three of these kids belong together,
    Three of these kids are kind of the same.
    But one of these kids is doing his own thing.
    Now it's time to play our game--
