Some odd choices. Why no Rickey Henderson, Jose Canseco, Strawberry, Wade Boggs, etc.?

Rickey Henderson was on a previous iteration of this quiz, but he was the least guessed so I removed him.

But I'll take your suggestion and add Wade Boggs.

Looks like the Red Sox like to trade big-name players.

Johnny Damon, Pedro Martinez, Wade Boggs, and Roger Clemens all left as free agents. The Red Sox offered Clemens a ton of money, but he turned out it down. They had no chance but to trade Manny Ramirez, who basically threw a tantrum and refused to play anymore...because he is an awful person. The Babe Ruth trade...well...that was bad. The only remarkable thing about the other five exits is that both Boggs and Damon went to the arch-rival Yankees.

So from 1920 to 1988, Nolan Ryan was the only player to change teams? *sigh*

Good thing there weren't any players of note, like, oh, I don't know, Roger Maris, Tom Seaver, Frank Robinson or WILLIE STINKIN' MAYS......ugh, why do I bother?

When Willie Mays went from the Giants to the Mets, he was about done and the transaction had little impact. Ditto Hank Aaron going back to Milwaukee to finish up with the Brewers. On the other hand, Frank Robinson was a major star with the Reds and he had am immediate impact on the Orioles.

Whatever we do, we don't want any quiz-takers to...*gasp!*...not get all of the answers! Heaven forbid somebody expands their knowledge of baseball history by learning about Hall-of-Fame players that may have played before they were born! Oh, the heresy!
