I agree with all those and would add trading Dante Bichette for Dave Parker to that list.

I was going to add in Jim Edmonds too but that trade wasn't a total waste. We did get AK who hit those big 3 HR's in Game 5 of the ALCS vs. the Twins. Bottenfield was a waste though.

I miss Jimmy too but we were heavy in the O/F and AK as you say has panned out.

IMO Jim just isn't the sort of guy you let get away.

When the Braves traded Dale Murphy I was crushed. So angry. Yeah, it paved the way to their current run of division titles but I was still very upset when it happened.

In hindsight, the Chargers drafting Ryan Leaf would be tops, but at the time I thought it was a good move.

Pistons:
Drafting Tayshaun Prince instead of Frank Williams
Letting Grant Hill walk and getting scrubs like Ben Wallace in return
Signing Chauncey Billups to a big contract
Trading Jerry Stackhouse for Rip Hamilton

Yes, I was truly pissed at all 4 of these moves when each move occured. Shows you how much I know, eh?

I hated the Angels for letting Glaus go to Arizona. I hated the Lakers for trading away Eddie Jones and the fact that they didn't get Wade in the Shaq trade, or at least Eddie back.

I have you all beat,
1. The worst trade in sports history - Hershal Walker
2. Top 3 worst deals in the past 5 years - trading Moss
3. Allowing a no good snake-oilcar saleman, cheapass to buy the team and spend no money on them.
4. Not firing Denny Greene 5 years earlier.
5. Hiring Mie Tice, the day before Tony Dungy is fired from the Bucs (see #3)

I thought they were going to let him back in for a few days so he could do this. When did that change?

Redskins: moved all the cash parking miles away from the stadium so you have to ride a fucking shuttle bus. Oh and it still costs $25 to park in the cash lots.
