He got one real pitching prospect (Dan Meyer), who now, aged 25, has pitched 18 innings in the bigs, a 6th or 7th man type arm in Juan Cruz, and a random AAAA OFer who put together a flukish half of a season with the Braves, in Charles Thomas. Pretty dreadful, especially compared to the Mulder trade.
He screwed up and learned from it. When it comes to prospects, more often than not, quantity beats quality.
