Weekend Reading And The Greatest Trade

Deuteronomy 11-13.


Wow. 50 years ago today, what more than one person consider to be the most lopsided trade ever occurred.

50 years is a long time.  But the results are still enjoyable. 

Most trades have a slight effect on the teams involved.  Rarely they have a major effect.

This trade couldn't have turned out better for both teams involved. 

The Cardinals got a Hall of Famer, and as a result 3 pennants, 2 championships, 3,000 hits and over 900 stolen bases as a result.

And the Cubs continued to suck.

Yep.  Couldn't have turned out better for the 2 teams involved.
