RIP Ray Sadecki

If there's a trade that epitomizes the 1960s Giants, this is it -- the Giants had a surplus of Hall of Fame first basemen (Stretch and Cepeda) and not enough pitching.

So they traded Cepeda to the Cards for Sadecki and finished just behind the Cards for the next two seasons.

Ray had a 2.6 and a 2.8 WAR in 1967 and 1968

He stunk up the joint in 1969 so the Giants traded him and Dave Marshall for Bob Heise and some other guy
