It made all the sense in the world

“It wasn’t a trade for the mild-mannered,” says Dodger general manager Fred Claire. “Dan and I talked about how we were going to get killed [in the public forum] on this deal. It was safer not to make the trade. But it made all the sense in the world.”

He’s talking about trading 21-year-old Pedro Martinez for Delino DeShields.

    I don’t remember this trade being too controversial, At least not as controversial as the Piazza trade. I often wonder how many championships the Dodgers would’ve won in the mid 90′s with Pedro.
