Delino DeShields for Pedro Martinez should be up there on the list.

The Nathan, Bonser, Liriano for Pierzynski trade is another one that comes to mind.

Colon for Phillips+Sizemore+Cliff Lee. A top 10 player, a top 30 player, and last year's CY winner for half a season of someone who had a 3.31 ERA and 1.32 WHIP.

That's the first trade that came to mind when I read the title of this thread. For all you young cats, this would be the equalivent of if the Giants traded Tim Lincecum for Jason Bartlett prior to this season.

I was going to use Neifi Perez but maybe that's going to far. ;-7
