We'll it's your turn, America, to have your voice heard! I was talking about this with a co-worker when we ran across #3 (below) and I, as a Met fan, had to throw out the 2 disasters we've been a part of.
I've been loving all the new comments on the posts recently, and let's keep it going. Which was the worst?
Nolan Ryan traded by the New York Mets with Frank Estrada, Don Rose, and Leroy Stanton to the California Angels for Jim Fregosi (Yup, thats it. Just Jim Fregosi).
July 30, 2004: Scott Kazmir traded by the New York Mets with Jose Diaz to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for Bartolome Fortunato (who?) and Victor Zambrano (ohh dear God. Did anyone else see him throw that 1 pitch like 2 years ago and immediately sprint off the mound, never being seen again? I guess his elbow just evaporated, along with his dignity).
Joe Nathan traded by the San Francisco Giants with Boof Bonser and Francisco Liriano to the Minnesota Twins for A.J. Pierzynski and cash (in all honesty, how could they know? Bonser and Liriano were nothing but prospects and Nathan was an injury plagued failed starter turned set up man that had 1 solid year in his career, and Pierzynski was one of the better hitting catchers in the bigs at the time. Still though, A.J. Pierzynski? Ouch!).
