I'm just curious because I can't believe how I've seemed to miss all the major injuries going on in baseball this year. Here's some of the players i traded away just before their injuries happened. It's even been so weird that people have asked me for an insurance(which i've declined) because they notice how i seem to get rid of a player just before he gets injured. The only injuries ive really had was Pedro(drafted) and Hinske who was a FA pickup.
Here's the deals..
1. Gave Griffey in a deal about 1 wk before his crash. Glaus was in the deal with Griffey too and has been on and off hurt all year.
2.Traded Beckett,Lackey for Bernie,Pineiro about a wk before Beckett went on DL.
3.Traded Bernie 4days before he went on DL.(Traded Delgado,Bernie,Klesko for Giambi,Berkman)
4.Traded Clement for Ishii- Ishii goes on DL today but that trade happend just before Clement started turning it around.. bout 6wks ago.
5. Traded JaunGone for G.Anderson about 1 wk before Jaun went on DL 1st time and now Jaun there again.
6.Traded Vlad,Rollins for Colon,Green,Tejada 3 days before Vlad was announced how long he'd be out for.
7.Gave up M.Morris,White for Lidle,Cameron 2 days before Morris got smacked on the hand.
8.Latest was this week just before trade deadline.. traded Berkman for Vlad and now Berkman's not on the DL, but he has been out a couple games with his knee now and Vlad has doing really well lately.
I just couldnt believe when i looked back at the deals i made and how a lot of them got hurt so fast after i traded them away. What i was wondering was if anyone else has seemed to have had the luck ive had when it comes to avoiding the injury bug across MLB this year? If so i'd like to hear the deals and when they were made in relation to players getting hurt. Just for fun
