    MLB.com: '03 trade had major impact on A.J., Nathan

    Interesting article at MLB.com about the 2003 trade of Pierzynski for Nathan, Francisco and Boof, and the fact that Joe and AJ are now teammates in Texas.

    I just posted about this on another thread. If Liriano had not been injured, this trade would have been a disaster for the Giants. As it stands, they just look like idiots for not paying AJ and getting his best seasons. I used to think it was a horrible deal, but in reality Liriano had 1.5 good seasons and Nathan was an elite closer (granted, against the AL Central).
    Do or do not. There is no try.
