A Real Good Acquisition
I was thinking about the "trade" (sale) of Babe Ruth to the Yankees the other way. It's pretty safe to say that worked out OK for the Yankees.
But, then I thought, what other player "acquistion" (trade or Free Agent signing) netted a player for the Yankees who went on to have a long and very good career for the Yankees?
Not many, really. Again, LONG and VERY GOOD Yankee career.
Paul O'Neill, Willie Randolph, Graig Nettles, and Red Ruffing. That's not a lot, for a team that's been around a 100 years.
Anyone else that I missed thinking quickly on it?
What about your fav team?
Anyone that your guys acquired that went on to a long and good career FOR YOUR TEAM?
It doesn't seem to happen as much as one would think - I think.
