The Expos were in a similar situation to the Twins this year, in that Pedro was going to be a free agent and there was no way they could keep him. At least the Expos got two prospects who made it to the majors and were mediocre. Definitely not a good trade, but it could have been worse.
AJ Pierzynski for Joe Nathan, Francisco Liriano, and Boof Bonser.
That was one terrible trade.
