I have always liked this trade when people were blasting Rizzo. Think about who the manager was at the time. Riggs played veterans and with Willingham here Morse would have had NO SHOT and we would never have had that magical year with him. Willingham has not had a full season in the last 5 years. He is injured, a negative on defense and he wanted a multiyear deal. He is a great guy, perfect for any clubhouse, a gentleman and all that but we benefited by finding Morse, getting a stud closer, and if Brown doesn't move to the majors, he can be a major trade piece in a year or two.
