Early Regrets from the 2014 MLB Trade Deadline

No matter what profession a person may have, everyone, at one point or another, asks himself a simple question: "What if?"

"What if I had pushed for that promotion at work?" "What if I had asked Emily out in eighth grade?"

In the case of general managers of MLB teams, the question takes a slightly different approach. "What if I had traded Player X earlier—could I have gotten a bigger return?" "What if I had been more receptive to offers on Player Y?"

Hindsight is both a blessing and a curse. While it forces us to face our regrets head on, it offers a chance to learn from those decisions, hopefully allowing us to avoid making the same ones in the future.

For the teams that follow, those regrets will prove to be far more painful than anyone realizes, both in 2014 and beyond.
