Worst trade you almost made

The day before Derek Lee got hurt I made an offer....my Ryan Howard and Jose Reyes for Lee.


I was actually watching the Cubs game that day at a bar and as soon as he got hurt I called my fiancee and walked her through the steps to take the trade off the table.

Almost traded Curt Schilling for Beltre at the beginnin of year (when beltre was hitting everything at the Classic). Good thing the owner rejected the offer. :-)

yeah absurd??? i mean even if you didn't expect a good season from soriano the latest he would go is the second round. Hudson most likely went in the 11th :-t This would have just been plain stupidity on your part, there was no reason to think this was a good trade at that time or now :-?

Just before Morneau went on his binge, I offered Morneau for Coffey.

Was turned down, fortunately.

I may have you all beat. :-D

In the beginning of the season, I was offered Tex for my Carlos Lee and Papelbon. I turned it down. Had I accepted -- and I was thinking about it -- my season would have been over right then and there. :-°

I almost did Grady Sizemore for Rafael Furcal before the season. That would've been a mistake. }:-)
