The MLB offseason is a time when teams evaluate their rosters and look to improve for the upcoming season.
When it comes to trades, the best deals are those that help both teams get better.
Ideally, you know your players best and have done the proper evaluation to know that you are not giving up a future All-Star who might help you down the road. Dealing from a position of strength is always the best option.
Sometimes, though, a trade backfires on you and the other team walks away the undisputed winner of the deal.
No team ever wants to be the one that gets fleeced on a deal, but as history has shown us, it certainly does happen from time to time.
