For us to get some of the quality players we have gotten with guys who have amounted to nothing is a reflection of good maneuvering by KW. Peavy for three mediocre pitchers? Genius.
Clayton Richard pitched pretty well in his 2 seasons prior to the last. It was in SD though.
Chris Young and Daniel Hudson are both good players that came from KW trades.
