Triple Play: Three Hall of Famers Traded in 24 Hours

First Ivan ‘Pudge’ Rodriguez to the Yankees. Then Ken Griffey, Jr. to the White Sox. And finally Manny Ramirez to the Dodgers.

In the long history of baseball, wonder if three sure-fire Hall of Famers were ever before traded in a 24-hour period?

Maybe the Elias Sports Bureau has the answer.

    I wouldn’t call Pudge “sure-fire.” He has been implicated in the steroids scandal, and until further information is made available, he is still under suspicion.

    Pudge will go in eventually — heck eventually the best players in the steroid era will get the Hall call. He’s not in the Mitchell Report. Credentials — one of the best defense catchers in history (13 Gold Gloves). A .302 lifetime average, 293 home runs, nearly 2,600 hits, AL MVP in 1999. He’s in.
