'Celebrity Apprentice:' La Toya...

AUG. 31, 1992: TRADED JOSE CANSECO TO TEXAS

AUG. 31, 1992: TRADED JOSE CANSECO TO TEXAS

The move: Traded Jose Canseco to the Texas Rangers for Rubén Sierra, closer Jeff Russell, and starting pitcher Bobby Witt.

The story: Frequent injuries and character issues led Alderson to give up on the oft-injured Canseco, who was, along with fellow "Bash Brother" Mark McGwire, the face of the A's. The jewel of the return for Canseco was supposed to be Sierra, but he struggled badly during three years in Oakland and proved to be no less of a disturbance. Russell left via free agency after the '92 season and Witt continued his mediocre career path with a 23-24 record and 4.44 ERA in two-plus seasons with the A's.

Verdict: Minus Photo Credit: Getty Images, 1991
