1989: Twins acquire Rick Aguilera, Tim Drummond, Kevin Tapani, David West, and Jack Savage from New York Mets for Frank Viola
Definitely a good trade, as great as Viola was. Tapani and Aguilera were rocks for this franchise for a long time.
Definitely got some return, at least.
A lot of these deals, you can't really judge now, because the temperature at the time the deal is made, sometimes explains or at least excuses, some of the obviously ugly results.
Work like a Captain.
Play like a Pirate.
