    Or you might look at the history of the Pittsburgh Pirates. They have had incredibly inept GM's for years. For example - trading Aramis Ramirez, CASH, and Kenny Lofton to the Cubs for Matt Bruback, Jose Hernandez, and Bobby Hill. How did that one work out???

    think that you forgot another incredibly dumb trade that ranks as the worst in MLB. This would be the Aurelio Rodriguez, Eddie Brinkman, Joe Coleman, Jim Hannan from the Washington Senators for Denny McLain, Don Wert, Elliott Maddox and Norm McRae. This just gutted the Nats and led to the very end of baseball in Washington for 33 years. McLain proceeded to lose 20 games in his inaugural season in Washington.

    It is really exciting. If there was any doubt in O's fans' minds whether Dan Duquette really meant "The future is now", it's certainly gone now.
