Transaction Tracker: San Diego Padres

Let's take a look at a handful of trades by the San Diego, which eventually netted them their All-Star first baseman, Adrian Gonzalez. I'll combine all players involved in these trades into two lists, to show who they (really) gave up and who they (really) now have.

Andy Ashby
P Akinori Otsuka
Billy Killian

1B Gonzalez
Chris Young
*OF Terrmel Sledge

*no longer with team

I decided to post this trade mainly because it links two trades—7 years apart—showing how the Padres got Adrian Gonzalez. Ashby netted the Padres multiple pieces, one of which was Adam Eaton, who along with Otsuka and Killian, enabled San Diego to make an organization-changing trade with Texas.
