Trades are always seen as which teams "won" and which team "lost." Sometimes, both teams win.
With the terrible starts to both Javier Vazquez of the New York Yankees and Melky Cabrera of the Atlanta Braves, thus far it appears both teams have "lost" in that trade.
We thought it would be interesting to go back 10 seasons and see what other trades did not work out for either team.
They could be salary dump trades or the usual trade deadline deals of prospects for established stars, when the star did not help his team over the top and the prospects did not pan out.
Several trades listed here contained players who has successful statistical seasons for their new teams. But the trades were not winning trades as individual success did not necessarily mean wins for teams which obtained players for the express role of leading that their new team to the playoffs.
