Best Trade

David Justice for Ellis Burks, Jake Westbrook, and Milton Bradley

Indians GM John Hart has never been shy about making trades. He detests letting players walk away for nothing via free agency, and he loves veteran hitters. (Yes, Kevin Seitzer and Dave Winfield really did play here.) Our pick for the best deal is the one last season that sent David Justice to New York for Ricky Ledee, Jake Westbrook, and Zach Day. Trading Justice, a.k.a. Mr. Glass, freed up the salary to sign Ellis Burks, solid batsman and clubhouse prince. Day was later traded for Milton Bradley, the heir apparent to Kenny Lofton.
