    You know what we need? A thread to talk about the worst deals conceived...that we failed in council.

    San Diego Trades

    SP WalterJohnson 3.5 Stars $5,850,000
    MR Emmanuel Brady 2.5 Stars $662,857

    Total $6,512,857

    Cubs Trade

    SP Bob "Hoot" Gibson 5.0 spec MLC
    2B Albert "Red" Schoendienst 3.5 spec $300,000
    SP Gabriel Cuesta 4.5 spec MLC
    MR Jeffrey Woodford 4.0 spec $300,000
    MR Rodney James 5.0 spec
    2044 1st Round Pick

    total: $600,000

    To be fair, Bob Gibson was a good 5.0 at the time and later took talent hits but I still don't know what I was thinking at the time. I'm just glad it failed

    Re: Bad Trades: We've all made them

    I think I'm going to go out on a limb and say that a recent trade of a potentially top 6 pick for a .624 OPS guy maybe should be on this here list.

    Man, did I have some serious issues back then.

    I mean, I still have serious issues, but less so now. I guess a 16.44 per hour increase in pay raise, making friends, and losing weight helped a lot.
