Assuming I'm right, my question is:

The Indians made the following trades in the early '90s that were instrumental in making them into MLB contenders in the mid to late '90s. I'll give you the player(s) the Indians gave up in the deal, you name the team they were dealt to and which player(s) the Indians received in return.

1) Eddie Taubensee and Willie Blair
2) Felix Fermin and Reggie Jefferson
3) Chris James, Sandy Alomar Jr, and Carlos Baerga
Winner! Yes, I was looking for Bishop Fenwick. The question may have been worded a bit confusing...sorry if it was.

No trouble at all with the wording. Great question!

McKinley was my first guess, but I figured that was too obvious.

Hard to believe 19 schools have won all 3. 6 of the 19 to have done it are public (in no particular order): McKinley, Defiance, Patrick Henry, Marion Pleasant, St. Henry, and Upper Arlington.

The 13 privates to have done it (in no particular order): Fenwick, St. V-M, Moeller, Elder, St. X, Purcell-Marian, St. Ignatius, Chaminade-Julienne, St. Edward, Bishop Watterson, Col. DeSales, Badin, and Ursuline.

Didn't Google it, but I did research it via the OHSAA's website.

1). The Indians got Kenny Lofton from the Astros
2). Omar Vizquel from the Mariners.
3). The last one is tricky. Didn't the Indians get those three for Joe Carter?

I was a big Detroit Tigers fan growing up but by the early 90's they were a bunch of fat old .220 hitters who would hit HR's (Fielder, Deer, Inky) and I hated their brand of baseball.

I switched to an Indians fan because they were so darn young and fun to watch. I absolutely loved watching them play. They could flat out hit. Incredible to think that Bartolo Colon, who was at the tail end of their incredible run, is still playing (and 100lbs. more than when he was a rookie). I remember an expert noting that due to his poor mechanics (leg flew open, all arm whip) that he would only last several seasons in the majors.

Good work. I'll let it slide on which team was on the other end of the deal for #3. The Padres later traded Carter and Roberto Alomar to the Blue Jays for Fred McGriff and Tony Fernandez. McGriff had some good years with the Padres, but that trade obviously worked out well for the Blue Jays.

IIRC, Colon was the organization's top minor league pitching prospect in '95 and '96. Lots of debate back then on local radio about whether or not the club should "mortgage the future" by trading him to acquire whatever might be the missing piece of a championship team. He made it to the bigs in '97 but struggled that first year and was somewhat overhsadowed by fellow youngster Jaret Wright. Hard to believe Colon is still around and didn't manage to eat himself out of the league.

Who started center field for the Yankees on opening day in 1952, their first game after DiMaggio retired?

My gut says Mantle but that would be too easy.

Mick played a lot of right his first years. And the ponies and the ladies.

Actually I believe Mickey played right in his rookie season until hurting his knee in the playoffs. I'm certain he took over in center field the following year but like I said that seems too obvious. Perhaps he did not start in CF on opening day?

Waiting on my2sense to let me know.

I looked it up. It wasn't Mickey. I will say the guy, while not a household name, ended up being a very good player for another team (including winning an AL MVP). And he retired for an interesting reason as well.

But what future Cy Young winner was traded to get Joe Carter in the first place?

The interesting thing about Jensen is that he retired because of an intense fear of flying and MLB's expansion to the west basically made that a necessity.

John Madden was the same way, and Royce White was a 2012 NBA pick but could not play because he was so scared of flying. It's such an irrational fear

White had a whole bunch of issues beyond that.

Madden's issues were based on an actual plane crash of the Cal Poly team. I'll give him a pass for that.

Though he did fly when he coached the Raiders.

Yeah White is basically insane. Sucks because he was a beast at Iowa State.
