What deal from the past ten years most infuriated you?

Deal/trade/contract/promotion/demotion/DFA--the move by the front office that you least liked. I'm judging the deals in the context in which they were made, so I don't get particularly upset about the Arrieta deal, even though the result was very poor.

Parra for Davies is mine. It just made absolutely no sense. The Chris Davis deal may end up being more of an albatross, and I think it was a mistake, but I can at least wrap my head around the logic.

Trading for Mark Reynolds. Worst fielding player I have seen in an Orioles uniform.

Tough one.

I loathed the Parra deal. It was an obvious act of desperation.

I strongly disliked giving up draft picks for Ubaldo and Gallardo.

But for pure anger it would have to be Dan selling the competitive balance picks. I guess the Matusz deal was the more blatant of the two so it would probably be the winner.

I think the Webb deal was annoying. He was t that bad I saw reason to give up a pick to dump him. Plus he was t making that much money.

I don't remember that many people being upset that we signed Jiminez. Seems like people in general were pretty happy.
