    Default Best/Worst Contracts, Trades, Team Moves...EVER...

    Like Boston selling Babe Ruth...Or, more recently, under worst moves...The Cavs firing Paul Silas.

    Best:

    Rasheed Wallace to the Pistons

    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Lindros trade from Quebec to the Flyers.

    In exchange for Lindros, the Nordiques received Peter Forsberg, Steve Duschene, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, Philly’s first-round pick in 1993 and 1994, and $15 million in cash, just to make sure the deal was even.

    Detroit Tigers singing Magglio Ordonez to a 5-year 75 millon dollar contract. He's a fuckin lemon.

    Oh, and the Payrod deal with Texas 250 million over 10 years.

    One thing is for sure, I want Scott Boras negotiating for my next annual review.

    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Good topic.

    Off the top of my head, in no particular order, here are some of the best/worst depending on which side you're on - Boston trading Bagwell for Larry Anderson; Detroit trading John Smoltz for Doyle Alexander; LA trading Shaq for a collection of stiffs; Portland picking Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan; whoever it was who traded Frank Robinson to the Orioles; Colorado's contracts to Mike Hampton and the other pitcher whose name escapes me but who just had the last year of his deal voided for consorting with a prostitute; Rangers signing Chan Ho Park; Dodgers signing Darren Dreifort; Angels signing Vlad (obviously a good deal); Yankees' contract for Jeter (bad); Payrod's Texas deal (I agree wholeheartedly with Pabs).

    Can't believe I left out the Mariners, who have made a number of huge contract blunders in recent years, including fat meaty contracts to aging losers such as Jeff Cirillo, Rich Aurilia, and Scott Spiezio.

    My favorite is the GB Packers taking Tony Mandrich before Barry Sanders and Troy Aikman.

    Worst contract? How about Denny Neagle's last deal with the Rockies? Or Mike Hampton's $120 million deal with the Rockies. (The Rockies love to give out bad contracts, don't they?)

    The worst of all:

    Texas giving A-Rod a 10 year, $252 million contract. No man is worth $25 million a year.

    Great choice. I'm sure there were a number of QBs picked before Montana (3rd round), so we could add that too. And speaking of NFL drafts, how about Tom Brady in round 6? Or the year the Steelers picked four (FOUR!) Hall of Famers in one draft?

    Back to baseball, trading Varitek and Lowe for Heathcliff Slocumb is a classic, all-time kind of bad trade.

    Worst move ever was Juan Gonzalez turning down something like $140 million from the Detroit Tigers. How about the contract Grant Hill got from Orlando?

    This trade resulted in three Super Bowl championships for the Dallas Cowboys, so I think this is definately one of the top five.

    The Celtics drafting of Len Bias didn't work out too well. And that was a hgih draft pick they earned through a trade of some sort.
