    Your Teams worst trades since 2000.....what just eats at you

    As a Cubs fan, there are 2......Cubs Trade Josh Donaldson, Matt Murton, and Sean Gallagher for Rich Harden and Chad Gaudin. Ouch, this one stings, and bad. The second for me is the Cubs drafting Josh Hamilton in the Rule 5 draft and netting a whopping $50,000 to send him over to the Reds. I can only imagine how the fortunes of the Cubs would have changed if these two trades wouldn't have happened. So, what are yours????

    Dan Haren for Mark Mulder.

    I think about this trade at least every two days during baseball season. Have since it happened.

    After the 2005 season, the Rangers traded Adrian Gonzalez and Chris Young to San Diego for Adam Eaton (the pitcher) and Akinori Otsuka.

    A few years later, the Rangers traded another promising first baseman, Chris Davis, to Baltimore for Koji Uejara.

    The Dbacks giving up Spivey, Overbay, Craig Counsel, Chad Moeller, Jorge de la Rosa, and Chris Capuano for Richie Sexson crippled the team for a few years in the early to mid 2000's.

    Cliff Lee to the Phillies for a pile of garbage - Jason Knapp (out of baseball), Lou Marson (out of baseball), Jason Donald (at best a AAA utility infielder), and Carlos Carrasco (one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball). We got nothing out of that, an everyone knew it. That trade was killed by everyone the minute it happened. At least we got Michael Brantley for CC...

    Reds trading Josh Hamilton for Edinson Volquez. Volquez had a good 08 season then blew out his elbow, while Hamilton had 5 solid all star years and a 2010 MVP.

    The Sox giving up Josh Reddick for Andrew Bailey. This one is really bad now, but it'll get worse if either prospect the Sox also gave up turn into stars (as Reddick did).

    The Joel Hanrahan trade was pretty bad as well; giving up on 2013 NL All Star Mark Melancon (who did suck with the Sox but cost them Jed Lowrie) for 9 games of Hanrahan and a 9.83 ERA.

    Neither trade crippled the team but the speed at which they went wrong for the Sox was frightening.

    I'm pretty sure Mariners fans right now would be calling the Pineda/Campos for Montero/Noesi trade a complete disaster.

    I can't think of too many horrible Yankee trades in recent memory. They traded Melancon for Berkman and that worked out for a bit. The Ian Kennedy/Austin Jackson combination getting Granderson back worked pretty well for a couple years, especially considering those guys kinda normalized quickly.

    Can't think of any major disasters since 2000 for the Brewers. In fact, most have been major wins (1/2 the Dbacks fr Sexson, Laporta for CC's crazy run, Segura/Hellweg for Greinke who was gone anyway). There's a chance I'm blocking out a horrible memory but overall the Brewers have dealt really well which is good because they've had some less than stellar drafts.

    Edit- after some digging to refresh my memory, trading Mark Loretta didn't pan out in return value-wise but that was during a time they had to do something/anything. Rough years.
    And of course trading Cirillo and Vina at the end of '99 blew goats but none "crippled" the franchise that was already a joke at the time

    Nothing horrific stands out for the Dodgers since 2000. Had the cutoff been 1998, I would point to the Konerko trade in July, which was preceded by shipping off Piazza in May. I could see trading Piazza - in '97 he only hit .362/40/124.

    Josh Hamilton right before he went bonkers for Edinson Volquez.

    Volquez was pretty good but Hams would have been huge in Cincy.
