Pedro Martinez played baseball for the Dodgers at one time. He played pretty well for them, and even his brother Ramon Martinez, who was a star for the Dodgers, thought that he was a better pitcher then he was.
But Dodgers management didn't exactly think the same way. As a matter of fact, they thought he was too small to be an effective starting pitcher in the major leagues.
They needed a second baseman and they decided to trade for DeLino Deshields. And that is when Pedros career took off.
In his first season with the Expos, Pedro Martinez became the first Expo to win the Cy young award. He went on to win two more Cy young awards, become an 8x all star, win a tripe crown award, and a world series ring. So a heck of a resume for Pedro Martinez.
In his three years with L.A, DeLino DeShields didn't hit higher then a .256. Now i'm not a baseball expert, but I'm pretty sure that's not real good.
