So, from a prospect perspective, who do you think got the best return for what they gave up?
A few notes:
I know it's stunning to see anything Ed Wade did look like a viable answer to this question, but the yield for Pence is pretty impressive. (Of course, then he wet himself on the Bourn deal, so at least all's normal in the world.)
I've omitted the Dodgers from that Bedard deal on the theory not even Ned Colletti would vote for that one.
There are a few minor deals or entirely PTBNL trades that I left out... if you feel strongly about one, my apologies!
This club got the best prospects for what they gave up:
