Houston's Gain

Yaz chimes in at Jeff Bagwell's retirement party
The ceremony included video tributes from several current and former major league players, including recently enshrined Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, Ken Griffey Jr., Luis Gonzalez and Chipper Jones.

But the biggest surprise came from Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, Bagwell's childhood idol.

"I begged the Boston Red Sox not to trade you," Yastrzemski said of the infamous deal that sent Bagwell to Houston for pitcher Larry Andersen in 1990. "Boston's loss is Houston's gain. See you in Cooperstown."

That was a really lousy trade, wasn't it?
