Four Most Active Teams In The July Trade Market Since 1986

View CoverRead All Articles

Mets (27 trades involving 84 players)
Micromanaging masters of small moves wish that they could undo their '99 swap ( Terrence Long to Oakland for Kenny Rogers).

Padres (27.77)
Biggest deal was '96 deadline-day trade that brought Greg Vaughn (50 homers for '98 National League champs) from Milwaukee for three bit players.

Reds (24, 76)
Have been on both sides of pitching dumps: Picked up David Wells for spare parts in '95 run to NLCS; got (albeit briefly) Yanks' prize third baseman Drew Henson for Denny Neagle last year.

Cubs (24, 64)
McGriff is second straight coup for general manager Andy MacPhail, who last year won bidding for coveted outfielder Rondell White.
