Trade History has been horrible

I suggest that we look at our talent evaluators, scouts, decision makers.  I think our history since the late 90's shows, well, our trades have been horrible:

  • Hudson for C. Thomas, D. Meyers (Thomas was a bust)
  • Ludwick for Carlos Pena (good trade poor patience)
  • Carlos Pena and Bonderman for Lilly (horrible)
  • Harang for J. Guillen (horrible)
  • Teahen for Dotel (Teahne still productive in KC)
  • Ramon Hernandez for Kotsay (bad back, good player)
  • Kotsay for Devine (one decent year)
  • Eithier for Bradley (Horrible)
  • Kendall for Blevins (a wash)
  • Byrnes for J. Kennedy & Witasik ( mistake)
  • Swisher for Sweeney & Geo Gonzalez (looks like a mistake)
  • Blanton for Outman (Country Joe is missed)
  • Scutero for K. Bell (why did we do this?)
  • Haren for B. Anderson, G. Smith, Eveland and Carlos Gonzalez (up to Anderson)
  • Hardin & Gaudin for Murton, E. Patterson and Gallagher (a wash maybe)

What do you all think?  I would love to have Swisher at 1B.  Scuturo at SS. Brynes as our 4th OFer. Teahen as our 3B would be huge upgrade. Eithier is a middle of the order stud. Haren would have priced himself out but what a pitcher to lose.
