If only we listened


Recommended Posts

I remember somebody on this board kept talking about getting Delino Deshields. If only we listened, he would look great in left field and batting lead off for us. The 123 could have been Dehields, Calhoun and Trout. Albert would have 40 RBI from all the times they walked trout and he hit ground outs or sac flies

You don't get credited with an RBI for a GIDP.

At least Milt Pappas was a 20 game winner. DD never accomolished anything worth noting.

Two problems with your post:

1. Wins are a false stat.

2. Pappas never won 20 games.

The problem with that trade was Reds management thought Robinson was getting old so they trade a MVP and multi-time all star for an okay pitcher.

The Reds and Pappas go on to do nothing as Frank wins the triple crown and MVP with Baltimore.

Pedro Martinez was only a relief pitcher for the Dodgers before the trade. His only 2 starts in 1993 came at the end of September. His first start he was lit up for 5 runs in 2.1 innings. The next start was a 5 inning outing. So the trade was a relief pitcher in a bullpen that had Gott and McDowell both with lower ERAs. DeShields replaced Jody Reed that opted for free agency.

 

On the surface not a great trade for the Dodgers but they felt they had a surplus of pitchers and needed a 2nd baseman. Too bad they got an oft injured DeShields but that was obviously not foreseeable. Also Gott and McDowell both tanked the following year so it made the loss even more bitter.

 

For the first three years in Montreal, Pedro led the league in only one category and that was hitting batters. At the time he was simply a little better than league average guy. It wasn't until 1997 that Pedro really became Pedro. By that time DeSheilds was playing for the Cardinals. From 1994-1996 the Dodgers were first in their division twice and went to the playoffs, the trade didn't really hurt them.
