Ramsus was hailed as the next Jim Edmonds, a franchise center fielder who was to bring championships with his bat at well as glove.
The Cards' former top prospect was a vital piece in the Cardinals' championship year, but not because of what he did for the team, but rather what he was able to bring back in a trade involving him and the Toronto Blue Jays.
While young Colby was impressive in his early stint with the Cardinals, it was clear that he was not going to be around very long when he and then manager Tony La Russa were not seeing eye to eye on Rasmus' issues.
So what does each team have to show for the trade that went down before last year's deadline?
Well for one, the Cardinals decided to hold on to lefty reliever Marc Rzepczynski. Although he has not performed as admirably as he did in the postseason, Rzepczynski is only twenty-six years old and has plenty of room to improve.
