1958 The Dodgers trade Gino Cimoli to the Cardinals for former Rookie of the Year Wally Moon and right-hander Phil Paine. The club's new outfielder will quickly become known for his 'Moon Shots,' 250+ foot high fly balls to left field at LA's Memorial Coliseum, which clear the 40-foot-high screen for home runs.
2005 Reaching a preliminary deal with the Dodgers a day before baseball's winter meetings, Rafael Furcal agrees to a $39-million, three-year contract to play shortstop in the City of Angels. The Braves, his former team for the past six seasons, and the Cubs vigorously pursued the 28-year-old Dominican infielder.
2015 The Diamondbacks and Zach Greinke come to terms, much to the chagrin of the Dodgers and Giants, who had sought to sign the highly-touted free agent. The 32-year-old right-hander agrees to a reported $206.5 million, six-year deal, making his annual average salary ($34.4 million) the richest in the sport's history.
