What was your worst trade this season?

I traded J Julio for D Lowe for starters, anyone else made any bonehead moves or trades as bad?

I traded Odalis Perez for Ebie Loaiza but who saw that coming? I traded Bret Boone for Chipper when I had a full lineup, leaving me with an empty 2B slot and an extra outfielder for no reason.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

I've managed to avoid bad trades this year, but had my bonehead drops. I dropped Dontrelle Willis to make room for Jose Contreras in one league when Contreras got recalled from the minors. Willis was about 1-1 at the time :-B . I also dropped Nevin early in the year when I read from several sites that Nevin wouldnt be ready until September at the earliest :-[ .

Last year when Pedro was on the DL early in the year I thought he was washed up and traded him for Rob Nen and Shannon Stewart in a roto league. That one really hurt. :~(

I nominate a guy in one of my leagues who dropped Webb, when Webb went on the DL.

Am I happy that I picked him up. :-D

Thanks for asking.

The worst was a trade that I didn't accept. Remember way back in the end of May when Dunn and Kearns were so hot and Halladay was awful? Well, I really wanted him and I offered Dunn. Halladay's owner counteroffered Kearns. I refused the deal. I'm still kicking myself.

during my draft, the news broke out that aaron boone would be playing 2b, my pick was about to come up, and i thought he'd be a steal.. so i traded tim salmon and bret boone for aj burnett. :-t

i made up for it through these other trades i made during the draft:
-traded bartolo colon for chipper jones and jason schmidt ;-D
-traded troy percival for jason kendall and mike cameron ;-D
-traded billy koch for edgar renteria ;-D

Worst Trade

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Mon Aug 11, 2003 4:37 am

I play in a basic points based league where you only get points for the following pitching categories

Wins = 10
Shutouts = 10 bonus points
Losses = -5
Saves = 4
Strikeouts = 1 point

I traded away RP Rocky Biddle for SP Curt Schilling when Schilling was on the DL. The trade was fair because the team with Schilling had a plethora of SP talent and desperately needed a closer. Since the trade Schilling has won just one game and lost twice while Biddle has saved half a dozen games. Not the worst trade in the world, but when you're running out of innings and down by just a handful of points, the trade, which looked like a no-brainer, has come back to haunt me a little.

Damien Moss for Loiza -- who I thought was a fluke.

Moss, at 6-1 seemed like the real deal.

My WHIP still hasn't recovered despite cutting Moss loose months ago.
