In fairness Travis Lee was still a pretty highly touted prospect, Padilla was only 22, and Figueroa was only 25. And Omar Daal had a pretty solid year the season before. And at that point Schilling was around 30 years old and only had had a couple really good seasons. Was it a great trade? Nope, but I liked those days better anyway.
