Bubble Gum Trade

As gross as the title sounds, I did not trade bubble gum with anyone, I just really suck at coming up with witty titles.A quick trade with Jeff Jones from wish they still came with bubble gum with what else? Gypsy Queen, sparing any readers there might base cards, the above Bruce Sutter is a short print, a Hall of Famer, and a beard card.

You don't think Rockies when you see these two guys, traded to the Padres as a package for Greg Harris and Bruce Hurst. I always wonder what kind of players they would have turned into if the stayed in Colorado.

Another "what if" player, in 1997 as a 26 year old Roger Bailey when 9-10 with a 4.29 ERA, which in a pre-humidor Coors Field equals a 121 ERA+. He completed five games with 2 shut-outs and pitched 191 innings. Then in spring training he suffered a back injury and never pitched in the majors again.

Thanks for the trade, and check out Jeff's blog at the link above if you haven't already.
