Braves got Mark Teixeira, Ron Mahay
Rangers got Neftali Feliz, Elvis Andrus, Matt Harrison, Jarrod Saltalamachia.
Then the Braves traded Teixeira for Casey Kotchman, so basically Teixeira and all those prospects turned out to be no playoff appearance and Casey Kotchman
As a Met fan, I can say the worst trade I lived through was in 2004 when the Mets traded Scott Kazmir for Víctor Zambrano and Bartolomé Fortunato. Now I know after 4 good seasons in Tampa Bay he didn't turn out that good, but at the time, people said that his value in the minors was so high that the Mets could have easily traded him for a superstar (like a Manny Ramirez at the time). He ended up getting the Mets two mediocre players that were beyond horrible.
I was surprised at the time too when Kazmir got traded for Zambrano.

Worst trade ever? Tom Seaver. Game over.
pedro martinez to the red sox for carl pavano and tony armas jr....that was a really bad trade...
1) a good trade is wher both teams get something good out the trade (in terms of talent)
2) A bad trade is where one team basically steals the other team's player without giving anything of value.
That said, in no particular order, here are the worst trades:
Steve Carlton traded to Philadelphia from St. Louis for Rick Wise.
Nolan Ryan, Don Rose, Leroy Stanton,, and Frank Estrada traded to California from NY Mets for Jim Fregosi
Jeff Bagwell traded by Boston to Houston for Larry Anderson
Curt Schilling, Pete Harnisch, and Steve Finley traded by Baltimore to Houston for Glenn Davis.
Derek Lowe and Jason Varitek traded by Seattle to Boston for Heathcliff Slocumb
Randy Johnson, Brian Holman, Aand Gene Harris by Montreal to Anaheim for Mark Langston
Lou Brock by the Cubs to St. Louis for Ernie Broglio
Tom Seaver traded by the Mets to Cincinnati for Pat Zachary, Doug Flynn, Steve Henderson, and Dan Norman
Jay Buhner by the Yankees to Seattle for Ken Phelps
Joe Nathan, Francisco Liriano, and Boof Bonser by San Francisco to Minnesota for A.J. Pierzinski
Rhyne Sandberg and Larry Bowa by the Phillies to Chicago Cubs for Ivan DeJesus.
David Cone from Toronto to NY Yankees for Marty Janzen, Jason Jarvis, and Mike Gordon
Fred McGriff, Dave Collins and Mike Morgan from NY Yankees for Dale Murray and Tom Dodd
Tony Fernandez and Fred McGriff by Toronto to San Diego for Roberto Alomar and Joe Carter
Josh Hamilton by Cincinnati to Texas for Edison Volquez.
David Cone to Toronto from NY Mets for Jeff Kent and Ryan Thompson.
Ozzie Smith from San Diego to St. Louis for Gary Tmpleton
Probably many more that could be included.

Jeff Bagwell to Houston from Boston for Larry Anderson.
