QUESTION: Who was the last starting pitcher acquired in a midseason trade to win the deciding game of the World Series?

ANSWER: Jeff Weaver, who went from the Angels to the Cardinals, started Game 5 of the 2006 World Series and allowed one earned run in eight innings of a 4-2 win for St. Louis. Weaver outpitched Detroit's Justin Verlander, who was traded to Houston this season and will start a potential clincher for the Astros on Tuesday.
