Another related example: The Mariners did alright on the Randy Johnson trade, if you figure he was probably leaving as a free agent anyway.

Instead of two months of Johnson, they got 5+ years of Freddy Garcia, 6 years of Carlos Guillen, and 4 years of John Halama.

Reminds me of that old Pittsburgh Pirates trade with the hated Yankees - Doc Medich to Pittsburgh for Willie Randolph, Ken Brett, and Dock Ellis. Plenty of trades go the other way though as you say.

As far as multi-player for 1 Astros trades, Moises for Henriquez/Barrios/Johnson is probably my favorite.
