And Fred Claire probably regretted his own genius, too:

“The irony is that the process left us with one of the best young second baseman in baseball, if not the best,” Claire said.

No, the irony turns out to be you traded Pedro for a guy who cracked a 700 OPS once in three years.

Good to go back and see how it turned out. Reed made $750,000 in '94, and a total of $2.9 M over the rest of his career.

Some interesting info out of the local Sarasota paper today regarding why Scooter didn't sign over the winter/spring.  Texpope has made some good points in the past regarding good-but-not-great veterans having a tough time in free agency, and Gemnett is a prime example...

"Gennett details that he did receive some offers, but they were either non-guaranteed or not to his liking from a financial standpoint. The top offer he received was a $1.5MM guarantee with incentives, but he’d been targeting a deal in the $5MM range. "

In retrospect, not such a good call unless you wanna retire at age 30.
