Leave out any players that got your team a good player(s) in return. Just players your team did away with, they blossomed elsewhere, and it really chapsyour ***.

Letting Greg Maddux leave as a free agent sucked.

Giving up on Jamie Moyer too

Shouldn't the Rays be pissed about what he is doing with the Tigers. Jackson is having a great season so far, but he was mediocre with theRays.

It will always be this guy....



Although he had great years with the Dodgers, 40 hr, 124 rbi's and a .362 batting average the year before he got traded. This one always stings....

You are crazy,
, they aren't winning much with thatlineup. The only two guys I would take back fromt that group is Soria and Jackson.

Navarro got injured and was replaced by Russell Martin. It is safe to say that Russell Martin is better than Dioner Navarro.

Cody Ross was out of options and was traded to the Reds. Ross hits for power, nothing more, I think he hit a grand slam the day before he got traded to theReds. Ross is not better than Ethier, Kemp, and Manny/Pierre.

Jayson Werth was solid, but once he got that high fastball to the wrist from AJ Burnett, it was all downhill from there. Last season was his first full seasonback and he produced. We got him for a bag of peanuts from the Blue Jays, so it should be the Jays
.

Shane Victorino was a Rule 5 pick....Twice. The Padres plucked him from our system and returned him, the following year he got picked up by the Phillies. Victorino is a late bloomer.

La Roche for Manny -


Delwyn Young - Never a fan. Good contact hitter, will probably hit over .300 with little to no power. Can't play defense if his life depended on it. Hitter with no position, and not enough power to be considered an AL DH.





David Price and Chase Utley wanted to go to college first and were out of reach when they were ready to turn pro. Crazy thing is Utley still wanted to be aDodger, but got drafted by Philadelphia. ARod wanted to be a Dodger too, but he got chosen by Seattle with the #1 pick, we got Darren Dreifort

The name that will always be stuck in my head is Paul Konerko. Besides the obvious, Pedro Martinez.
