    I think you’re thinking of Jeff Kent. We gave up Young for Esteban Loiaza

    Yeah, but Loaiza was never good. That's just an example of a bad trade.

    Incorrect. He was good in 2003. 226 ip. 2.90era 1.13. Finished 2nd in cy young voting to…..Roy Halladay. 7.2 WAR.
    This was the year AFTER the jays where
    He had back to back over 5 era seasons.

    Worst part of this trade is that we bought LOW on loiaza ( a man with over 50 pct vowels In his name, save some for the rest of us bro) with a 5 era at the time and still gave up a hell of a player in michael young

    Not sure why, but this post feels like classic Wamco.

    In a good way of course.

    It's amazing how long that guy was able to pitch considering how mediocre/bad he was.
