Mike Piazza -- What a Deal

       In case you're wondering, I looked it up:

       So basically, it was part of that sickening unloading that soured many fans. In the end we ended up with starter Preston Wilson. Zeile played 66 games in 1998 and was gone. Yarnall played two years with Yankees in 1999 and 2000.

       We got Wilson, we gave up Bonilla, Eisenreich, Johnson and Sheffield.  

       But I didn't look far enough. My buddy Sam adds this: "Those deals weren't a complete waste.  We traded Yarnall to the Yankees for Mike Lowell.  We traded Preston Wilson to the Rockies for Juan Pierre and Mike Hampton.  We later traded Hampton to the Braves for Tim Spooneybarger, who got hurt and never did much for the Marlins but at least he had a great name."
