This Day in Baseball History:
March 4, 1972 > The Texas Rangers trade former 30-game winner Denny McLain to the Oakland A's for minor league pitchers Don Stanhouse and Jim Panther. McLain, who lost a league-leading 22 games for the Washington Senators in 1971, will last only five starts in Oakland before being traded to the Atlanta Braves. By the end of the year, his once-brilliant baseball career will be over.
