» June 15, 1982: In a convoluted three-way deal, the Pirates send vet Bill Robinson to the Phils, while the Phils send promising OF Dick Davis to the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays send Wayne Nordhagen to the Bucs. Nordhagen plays one game for Pittsburgh, going 2-for-4, and then goes down with a stiff back. Claiming a pre-existent injury, the Pirates complain to Toronto, and on June 25 the Jays agree to take Nordhagen back, sending Davis to the Pirates. Alas, Davis, who plays in nine road games with the Jays, will hit .182 for the Bucs.
