Today in Tribe History: July 28, 2000
The Indians obtain pitchers Bob Wickman, Steve Woodard, and Jason Bere from the Brewers in exchange for slugging first baseman Richie Sexson, pitchers Paul Rigdon and Kane Davis, and a player to be named later. The Indians keep trading, bringing back outfielder Wil Cordero from the Pirates for prospects Enrique Wilson and Alex Ramirez, both of whom will wind up as busts for Pittsburgh. The Tribe had declined to re-sign Cordero after last season and he upped with the Bucs for three years. The Indians then pick up slick-fielding first baseman David Segui from the Rangers for outfielder Ricky Ledee.
