Zack Greinke and Hanley Ramirez have already changed teams, and general managers still have a few more hours to make additional big trades. Some of the deals from the 2012 season may quickly be forgotten, but there’s always the possibility of a blockbuster that can change the fortunes of a team for years. In honor of baseball’s Tuesday trade deadline, here are some of the most famous (and infamous) in-season deals in baseball history _ one for each of the 30 franchises.
Schilling was 33 at the time but had plenty left. He went 45-13 in 2001 and 2002, leading the Diamondbacks to a dramatic World Series title in `01 and finishing second in the Cy Young vote both years to teammate Randy Johnson.
When the Braves traded for McGriff, the press box at old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium literally caught fire the day he joined the team. The Braves followed suit, going 49-16 down the stretch to edge the Giants in the last great division race of the pre-wild card era.
