Chris Getz Lone Holdover From Royals Trade Of Carlos Beltran

A new post over at the always must-read has a quick take on the Royals trade of Carlos Beltran back in 2004 — an anecdotal read since Beltran is now back on the trade market at the deadline as a New York Met.


An interesting side note is that, through several transactions, current starting second baseman Chris Getz is the lone holdover from the mega-trade that also brought Mark Teahen and John Buck. Getz wasn’t a direct addition, and MLBTR tells the story well so you should head there. But it’s interesting that such a large trade can still make waves seven years later with the same franchise.
