Jays Trade Jeff Kent to the Mets.



The Jays had Robbie Alomar and Kent was involved in them acquiring David Cone who was big in the Jays winning their first World Series. As foe the Maple Leafs your post is just the beginning of the story

The Cubs traded an outfielder to the Cards for 2 pitchers well past their primes during the 1964 season.The guy would hit .348 for Cards that season & go on to have an HOF career - Lou Brock.
The Cubs might have won the WS during the 60's or 70"s had they kept Brock.

The Pirates trade part time player Jose Bautista to the Jays for the immortal Robinson Diaz.Bautista woulod hit over 50 homers for the Jays the following season & would have a solid career.

Not necessarily great, but when Chris Carpenter left the Jays and went to the Cardinals, he had a stretch where he was a very good pitcher, including winning a Cy Young

When Carpenter was with the Cardinals, he was the first pitcher that I drafted for my fantasy baseball team each year in the S&W fantasy baseball league. Got a ton of wins, threw deep into games, and pitched a number of complete games as well. Unfortunately, he also had a lot of injuries so he spent a lot of time on the DL.

Technically, Carp was released, not traded.

A prime example is Jake Arrieta. Arrieta was drafted by the Orioles in 2007 and debuted for the team in 2010. In his four seasons with the Orioles, he had a 20-25 record and a 5.46 ERA.

Arietta was traded to the Cubs in 2013. In 2015, Arrieta won the NL Cy Young Award with a 22-6 record and a 1.77 ERA. He backed up his 2015 performance in 2016 by winning 18 games (including a no-hitter) and a 3.10 ERA.

He also performed well for the Cubs in the post-season winning both of his 2016 World Series pitching appearances with a 2.38 ERA.


I can post many more examples throughout Orioles history.

Did your team have any average players who went on to greatness with other teams?
The Orioles had the same thing happen with Schilling, but worse because Curt was dominant for much longer than Jake was.
For the Yankees, I still think the two prime examples would be Willie McGee and Fred McGriff.  I'm not mentioning Jay Buhner, because I just don't look at him in the same light.  He's more like Doug Drabek - both were great for short periods of time.  McGee and McGriff were dominant for a decade.  For the Mets, I think you can start and finish with Nolan Ryan. 

They had Drabek and Jose Rijo.  They could've has those 2 guys for the overlapping 5-6 years they were good, may have been able to win the pennant during Mattingly's prime.
