Written by Bruce Weirauch,

June 13, 1984 The Cleveland Indians trade Rick Sutcliffe along with George Frazier and Ron Hassey to the Chicago Cubs for Joe Carter, Mel Hall, Don Schulze, and minor league hurler Darryl Banks. After the midseason trade, the 28 year-old right-hander Sutcliffe, who will go on to win the National League Cy Young award, posts a 16-1 record for the Chicago Cubs, leading the team to the National League East flag. In their wildest dreams, Cubs fans never thought this trade would play out the way it did. Sutcliffe was 4-5 with an ERA over 5.
