Oakland trades for Pittsburgh catcher
That headline (or something similar) will be appearing this week as the A's trade Mark Redman and Arthur Rhodes to Pittsburgh for Jason Kendall. This wasn't the first time the A's acquired a star catcher of the Pirates. In 1976 they traded for Manny Sanguillen. He only played for Oakland one year and was then traded back to Pittsburgh. But what was more remarkable was who Manny was traded for. Hint: Manny Sanguillen has something in common with Randy Winn.
