Worst trade ever


Recommended Posts

Cindy has it nailed, at least in terms of pure value. You can argue until you're blue in the face about whether the trade was justified at the time, but I'm just going on value after the deal. I've seen win shares analysis of the worst trades ever and this one came out on top. It's a trade of two early career (plausible) HOFers, and an All Star for the last 600 halfway decent at bats of a one-dimensional first baseman.

Adding up WARP3 after the trade Davis had 3.8. Schilling/Harnisch/Finley had about 228. That's roughly the equivalent of trading the career value of Babe Ruth for the career value of Jeff Tackett. It can't get much worse than that.

What was Nanette's WARP 3?:D
