Jays trade him and Griffin for Bill Caudill because the bullpen was shit.
    Great trade,Bill Caudill really helped.

    At least he brought us Scott Boras (he was Scotty's first client). Hard to believe the 5 year $8.7M deal was one of the biggest at the time for a non free agent.

    He also got Bobby Cox'd who believed that relievers had to throw 3 pitches. Caudill went from a 100 inning guy in Oakland K'ing almost 1 per a 70 inning guy who struck out 6 and walked 4.5. Even with those ugly numbers he managed to FIP beat a 2.99 ERA out the shit. Shoulder problems as well I suppose. Fun memories of those mid 80's teams.
