This is another post 2000 special and it premiered in August of 2003 on ABC. Charlie Brown starts by being optimistic for his team in baseball season (you know like most of the real Baseball teams) , and Linus and tells him that the team is in trouble .(you know like most of the real baseball teams) Charlie's confidence dies because of Lucy and he feels that his team is not going to do well because of her. It's a game day and C.B's team is going to Peppermint Patty's team to play against them and of course he loses. (by forfeiting) Then his team continues to lose games.

Charlie Brown ( probably from watching too much ESPN or sports network of your choosing) decides that he is going to do a trade for a player. He calls Peppermint Patty if she would willing to trade, suggesting Lucy, P.P hangs up , the only player she wants is Snoopy. So Charlie Brown calls her back and decides to take her up on the offer , trading 5 players to Snoopy. He tells his team mates what happened and they of course get mad at him. (because he's Charlie Brown) He decides after the pressure and his own guilt to pull the contract and rip it up. (In legal this is called ripping up a contract) When he was about to tell her ... she tells him that her 5 players would rather give up than play for him.
Peppermint Patty calls to Charlie Brown to trade Marcie for Lucy. Though Marcie wants to stand next to Charlie Brown more than play baseball , that she hates, because of her fondness of Charlie Brown. (see Charlie you are loved)

And Lucy isn't turning out better for Peppermint Patty (see a fair trade) Peppermint Patty calls Chuck again and begs to call the whole deal off and they switch back. And everything ends back to normal or whatever that means.
That's our lookback it's a fairly simple special and it's based off a long sequence in the strip in the 1960's . Also is Charlie Brown just cursed in baseball . maybe he should try hockey?
Tune in next time when we find the special where Snoopy gets picked up by the San Diego Padres.
