    I figured that. That was a bad trade considering Tex was traded a year later.

    Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and four prospects: shortstop Elvis Andrus, and starting pitchers Matt Harrison, Neftali Feliz and Beau Jones.

    Neftali looks like he's going to be a great pitcher when he fills out. Elvis is better than Yunel Escobar who the braves kept, and the sky is the limit for Elvis.

    How about the Red Sox trading Jeff Bagwell to the Astros for Larry Anderson? It was a good trade if you are an Astros fan.

    He wanted to go to a team closer to his family. He asked the Jays management for a trade and they helped him out.

    The Astros trading Kurt Shilling to the Phillies was pretty bad. However, I can't blame the Astros too much. Kurt Shilling was terrible as an Astro.
