Examples of successful trades for prospects
With all the discussion about possibly trading players away, where sometimes the opinion is "not unless we're blown away by an offer," I got to thinking about what kind of successful trade ought to be the benchmark now. Here are three, just off the top of my head:
- Rangers trade Mark Teixeira for a nucleus
- Braves trade Doyle Alexander for a future HOF starter
- Twins trade A.J. Pierzynski for three pitchers who worked out to varying degrees
What other such trades would you nominate?
