Bud Selig thought about blocking the Marlins-Blue Jays blockbuster, but Bowie Kuhn did more than think about overturning trades during his time as commissioner.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

Bud Selig took six days to review the 12-player Marlins-Blue Jays trade before allowing it to stand. However, there is some precedent for a commissioner having the power to overturn trades, as Steven Goldman explained in the piece reprinted below, which was originally published as a "You Could Look it Up" column on April 24, 2006.

Prospectus Matchups: Turnover

0

Jim Baker

Not all rotations rotate from one year to the next, but have some of the most rejumbled rotations produced better results for their teams?

What the Cardinals have done with their starting pitching staff in 2007 seemed a lot more impressive two weeks ago before they dropped 11 of their last 12 games. After manhandling the Pirates on September 6, they were 69-68, a record that was the product of a long battle to return to an above-.500 record that they had been waging since the twelfth game of the season. They had done this with a rotation that was greatly turned over from 2006, their World Championship season. Three-quarters of their games this year have been started by men who did not start a single game for them last year. This was in marked contrast to the 2005 staff, one in which the front five-Chris Carpenter, Jason Marquis, Mark Mulder, Jeff Suppan and Matt Morris-made all but two of the team's starts.)

The Cubs shuffle through pitching options, the Brewers have one of the most interesting rosters in the game, and the Dodgers fight through injuries as they try to stay in the race. This and much more in Transaction Analysis.
