Jose Guillen

I've said this since 1999, but I still think the Pirates made a bad deal trading Jose Guillen. Guillen was traded in his third season after having 70+ RBIs his first two years. I know he struggled in Tampa Bay and he has some attitude problems, but I still don't understand why the Pirates gave up on a productive player who was so young. Was getting Joe Oliver and Humberto Cota worth giving up on him? Even in the past few years, Guillen has said he wanted to come back to play in Pittsburgh. Oh well.
