Jestadt, Jimenez and Jodie

Garry Arthur Jestadt  was drafted by the Cubs in 1965, drafted by the Expos in the expansion draft, traded to the Cubs for Jim Qualls, and then traded to the Padres for Chris Cannizzaro.  He played 167 games for the Padres in 1971 and 1972.  After that he played off and on in the minors through 1980.  I got this signed through the mail several years ago.
D'Angelo Jimenez was drafted by the Yankees in 1994 and was still playing professional baseball.  He is only 32 years old so could still make a comeback.  He played for the Newark Bears and two Mexican League Teams in 2009 and is signed to play for another in 2010.  He played  for the Padres in 2001 and 2002, he came in a trade with the Yankees for Jay Witasick and left to the White Sox for Humberto Quintero.  I think the card was signed through the mail.

Brett Paul Jodie pitched in 8 major league games, all in 2001.  1 for the Yankees and 7 for the Padres.  He was traded from NY to SD for Sterling Hitchcock.  His ERA in one game with the Yankees was 27, and with the Padres it was 4.63.  In his 7 games with the Padres he seems to have been used in a variety of situations, he started three games and then seems to be some sort of middle relief.  I stumbled across the card on eBay and then sent it to Brett to sign and it came back within a week or so.  He is currently the pitching coach for Somerset of the independent Atlantic league.

D'Angelo Jimenez - I think he played briefly for the A's around 2006/7.
