The Wednesday Quiz

The Yankees are in the middle of a series with the Oakland A's, so here's a quiz about players who have played for both franchises. The answers will be posted tomorrow.

1. In one of the great trades in Yankee history, the Bombers stole Sparky Lyle from the Red Sox in exchange for Danny Cater (and Mario Guerrero) in 1972. But who did the Yankees trade to Oakland to acquire Cater before the 1970 season?

↵

2. Rickey Henderson was traded by the A's to the Yanks in 1984, and then shipped back to Oakland in 1989. There was a pitcher who was part of the package in both deals. Who was he?

↵

3. In that same 1989 trade, the Yankees acquired an outfielder who would play for the team three different times. Who was he?

↵

4. Who was the outfielder/first baseman/DH who appeared in eight games for the 1977 Yankees, played for four different teams that season alone (including the Mets) and would play the last three seasons of his career in Oakland from 1984 to 1986?

↵

5. Which player did the Yankees pick up at the trade deadline from Oakland in 1995 in exchange for Danny Tartabull, and then was shipped to the Tigers almost exactly a year later in a deal for Cecil Fielder?
