Jan. 10, 1991: The Orioles trade outfielder Steve Finley and pitchers Curt Schilling and Pete Harnisch to the Houston Astros for first baseman Glenn Davis.

Orioles general manager Roland Hemond engineers this deal, which sends three promising players to Houston for Davis, 29, one of baseball's most productive sluggers. Hindered by baffling injuries and batting slumps, Davis hits .247 with 24 home runs in three years and is released. Meanwhile, Schilling (pictured) and Harnisch pitch for 28 more years combined and win 310 games between them. Finley plays 17 more seasons, hitting 304 career homers and winning five Gold Gloves.
