Remembering the Josh Hamilton/Edinson Volquez trade
Four years ago, Josh Hamilton was coming off a rookie season in which he hit .292 with 19 homers and 47 RBIs. Edinson Volquez was 3-11 with a 7.20 ERA over parts of three season with the Rangers. Cincinnati and Texas swapped the promising youngsters on Dec. 21, 2007, and the rest, as they say, is AL MVP campaigns and Mat Latos trades.
