    Looks like he traded very few prospects that ever amounted to anything. That's good to see

    He took advantage of the McGwire bump (they were a fairly stagnant franchise at that point), rode it to success and then took on other teams' unwanted payroll in future years.

    You'll notice that all the bigger names that he traded for ended up performing rather well for them. McGwire (no brainier, but he got him for nothing), Walker, Clark, Rolen......Man, did he trade for some impact bats over the years or what?

    I'll try to expand on it later, but wanted to get something up before the deadline.
