There are a few trades the Tigers made that completely robbed the other team.
The Miguel trade. The one where we got Fister.
Also there 3 team trade between ARI NY AND DET was nice for each team.
Det got, Austin Jackson, Scherzer, Coke.
NY got Granderson
ARI got Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy
Fergie Jenkins and change for Bob Buhl and Larry Jackson
how about pedro martinez for delino deshields the dodgers got three crap years out of delino and the expos got a beast out of pedro
some i havent seen
-o's trade milt pappas for frank robinson
-o's trade curt schilling and steve finley to the astro's
-mets trade nolan ryan to the angels for jim fergosi
I don't know if you can get much worse than Lou Brock, Jack Spring, and Paul Toth for Ernie Broglio, Doug Clemens and Bobby Shantz.
Not just because it was such a one-sided trade, but the Cubs could have had Brock, Banks, Santo, Williams, and Jenkins throughout the late 60's and early 70's.
Phillies trade Curt Schilling for Travis Lee, Nelson Figueroa, Omar Daal and Vicente Padilla. He basically forced the trade, but damn did we get destroyed on that one.

Those would be signs. I read that joke and felt the life suck out of the room around me.
Lenny Dykstra for Juan Samuel.1989....Samuel gained 200 lbs and Dykstra went on to hit 393 for the Phillies...Juan won tin the Game of Life though, because hes not in Jail
The then Tampa Bay Devil Rays selected Bobby Abreu from the Astros in the 1997 expansion draft only to deal him hours later for Kevin freaking Stocker per a prearranged agreement.
how about a trade nobody mentions.....Volquez for Hamilton.
That last trade wasn't a robbery. It worked out rather well for everybody.

Mark Langston for Gene Harris, Brian Holman and Randy Johnson.
Jermaine Dye for Keith Lockhart and Michael Tucker
Adrian Gonzalez and Chris Young for Adam Eaton
Aramis Ramirez from the Pirates to the Cubs
Jose Bautista for a PTBNL
The Randy Johnson trade from the Expos should be near the top.
Jason Varitek and Derek Lowe for Heathcliffe Slocumb
Sammy Sosa for George Bell
Mark McGwire for 3 prospects who never did anything
Stupidity is learned
