Jack, Lamarr, Walt and Trenidad
Dewey Lamarr Hoyt was then 1983 American League Cy Young Award winner and part of the reason that Ozzie Guillen is the White Sox skipper. Before the 1985 season, Ozzie, who had signed with the Padres at 17 and played for them for four years, along with several other players was traded to Chicago for Lamarr and several other players. Lamarr played for the Padres in 1985 and '86 and then had a bit of legal problems. I got this off of eBay.
It definitely must be spring training I mailed out nine TTM requests. 7 to current Padres, 1 to Henry Blanco with the Mets and one to the Padres new GM Jed Hoyer. We'll see how soon they arrive back.
