New York Mets: The Franchise's 5 Worst Midseason Trades in History

Jim Duquette is responsible for one of the worst trades in Mets history.

Like many people, I view the trade deadline as a chance for the Mets to get some fresh blood. Sometimes it's in the form of prospects who will contribute at a future time (Zack Wheeler), sometimes it's veteran help that could potentially contribute now. 

Sometimes the deal works out and said player goes into the echelon of Mets players who made a difference. Other times, and this happens a lot, the deal blows up in the Mets' faces. 

With the deadline approaching and Sandy Alderson committed to improving the bullpen and maybe the offense with a right-handed bat, we look back at the five worst deals in franchise history.
