So Petit gets the nod today, called up after Micah Owings messed up his hammy going 1st to third (turns out he's a heck of a hitter) and we all get to complain how we needed that insurance starter with all of the injuries early in the year and Julio has cost us more games (6?) than he has saved (0?). Let the complaining begin!

If he turns out to be a good starter, the Julio trade is officially the worst in club history.

if he wins 1 game for the D-Backs, it's an awful trade, because Julio's already blown 3.

 

I think it was a bad trade the moment it happened, because it's Jorge Julio we're talking about.

I don't think anyone doubts it was a bad trade, but the question is: was a bad trade, or the worst trade?

Derrek Lee for Hee Seop Choi has to be up there when talking about worst Marlins trades ever.

 

The Luis Castillo for Travis Bowyer (TJ surgery) and Scott Tyler (mediocre prospect at best) trade is beginning to look worse daily as well.

 

I forgot about that one! I was furious when the Dodgers sent Paul LoDuca packing to pick Choi up. I believe I shed a tear that day.

Under the circumstances, it was a good trade. We held onto Castillo and Lowell and tried to make a run at re-signing Pudge - all top 10 players at their positions - by trading Lee away. And we got back a promising talent and a lefthanded bat our lineup lacked despite having close to zero leverage. That Choi didn't contribute up to the expectations of many - and mainly Jack McKeon - made the trade bad. What made it unforgettable was that Lee took his game to MVP level.

and that Choi has never done anything since
