ESPN did a look back at some big trades and among them was the 2002 deal that sent former Bridgeport Bluefish pitcher Tim Drew and Bartolo Colon from the Cleveland Indians to Montreal Expos for Grady Sizemore, Brandon Phillips and Cliff Lee. Drew is the only one not playing anymore. The rest of the guys have made a pretty good name for themselves.
