Best baseball trades

    In the spirit of the Josh Hamilton for Edinson Volquez deal, I'm trying to put together a little list of the recent baseball trades that worked out well for both teams. Say over the last 10 years or so.

    Off the top of my head, Beckett-Lowell for Hanley Ramirez is one of them. I'm sure I'll overlook some if I do it myself, so I wanted to enlist the collective brain power of SportsJournalists.com.

    (This is for my Sunday notes, by the way.)

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    The Braves traded a used bat bag and a case of beer for Mike Hampton.

    That turned out GREAT... for Colorado/Florida.

    Make sure you don't put Placido Polanco for Ugueth Urbina out there.

    Someone just had to go setting people on fire and killed the thing.

    Although, the Phillies still got to start their every day second baseman, and the Tigers got a hell of a second baseman.

    The most famous example is Smoltz - Alexander.

    I did? :D

    OK, give the Royals the one good one they got: Soria (from the Mets) for Burgos.

    Soria was a Rule V pick from the Padres. It was Bannister they got from the Mets.

    Knew you would come through on your assignment. Same I'm sure for Redenbacher. Will no doubt have to track down that fuckin' alabia, per usual, to get his (her?) contribution.
