    Greatest Trade with Padres

    Had to be Gene Locklear, or even Angel Bravo, or possibly even Mark Kroon, or Buddy Carlisle all epic transactions

    too obvious, I am looking for arcane esoterica, like Fred Kendall or even Champ Summers

    I was thinking Ed Sprague Sr., but baseball-reference.com is down and I wanted to double check to see if I am wrong/right.

    Gene Locklear for Fred Norman. Bobby Tolan and Dave Tomblin for Clay Kirby.

    Greg Vaughn, although here a short time, was one of the main reasons we did what we did in 1999.

    For a while during the early 70's it seemed as if the Reds would trade for any Padres pitcher who could beat them; the only one they could not succeed in trading for was Randy Jones.

    I especially enjoyed watching Norman, the little lefty, pitch.

    30 years later...
    For awhile during the 2000's it seemed as if the REDS would trade for any Pirates LH pitcher who could beat them; the only one they could not succeed in trading for was Oliver Perez (thank goodness it seems).

    Jimmy Anderson (2003 REDS)
    > 2002 Pirates vs. REDS: 4GS, 29IP, 25H, 9ER, 2.79 ERA.
    > All 4 starts are quality starts: 7IP-3ER, 9IP-1ER, 7IP-2ER, 6IP-3ER.
    > Loses 1st start, wins last three starts.
    > 2003 REDS: 7GS, 9.08 ERA, 1.91 WHIP, 1-5 record.
    >> Released June 22, 2003.

    Dave Williams (2006 REDS)
    > 2005 Pirates vs. REDS: 1GS, 7IP, 1H!, 1ER, 1-0.
    > Quality start, Pirates win 9-2.
    > 2006 REDS: 8GS, 7.20 ERA, 1.75 WHIP, 2-3 record.
    >> Traded to NY Mets May 24, 2006.

    Re: Greatest Trade with Padres

    Didn't we do Bip Roberts for Randy Myers (Am I remembering that right?)

    Bip was a very good player for a few years.

    I was trying to remember who we got when we traded Rassmussan to the Padres. It might not have been anyone good, but I was trying to remember.

    Also, don't forget about Carlemo Martinez (He might've been FA, I can't recall)

    Dennis Rasmussen:

    June 8, 1988: Traded by the Cincinnati Reds to the San Diego Padres for Candy Sierra.
    I do not remember Candy Sierra!

    I really liked Bip Roberts, though; he was a sparkplug, a "scrappy!" player who could probably play for JN. His best year was 1992, when he was an all-star for the Reds; unfortunately for Bip, he never rose to those heights again.

    Bip indeed came to the Reds in exchange for Randy Myers and a PTBNL:

    December 8, 1991: Traded by the San Diego Padres with a player to be named later to the Cincinnati Reds for Randy Myers. The San Diego Padres sent Craig Pueschner (minors) (December 9, 1991) to the Cincinnati Reds to complete the trade.

    It wasn't just the '70's. In the '80's we did the same thing with Bob Shirley and Bob Owchinko. My favorite Padres trade was acquiring Norman, but Randy Myers for Bip Roberts was a nice trade as well.

    I think Candy was a bad relief pitcher.. Not positive though.
