At the trading deadline in 2003, Theo dealt for a much-needed starting pitcher and straightened out the Sauerbeck deal at the same time. The Red Sox acquired Suppan from the Pirates and took back Brandon Lyon, whom they had dealt to Pittsburgh earlier in the month, in exchange for Mike Gonzalez, Freddy Sanchez, and cash. Suppan was disappointing at 3-4 with a 5.57 ERA the rest of the way in 2003.
