Probably will be tough to top the Manny Machado deal as the most significant of the trade deadline season. Machado could help the Dodgers win it all this season. Or, he may not, and he may not be back next year. So, we’ll just have to wait to see how it works out. But, we can look back at some deadline deals of the past, those that worked out and the many that didn’t. More after the jump.
The rest of this post is courtesy of yardbarker.com. On their site are a couple of lists, one titled “The most lopsided MLB trade deadline deals“, and the other “Every MLB team’s best and worst deadline trade from the last 25 years” (one curious thing is that some of the worst trades in the second list didn’t make the first, and vice versa).
I’ll let you take a gander at those lists and then ask you to weigh in with your thoughts. Have the authors got it right, or are there other trades that belong on those lists? Have fun on this trip down memory lane.
