SF Giants give:
AJ Pierzynski (or however you spell it)
I think that one kinda sucked badly.
Edit: I know your not a big fan of links, but here is what ESPN said were some really really bad trades.
Edit: I think #7 might interest you.
7. Mariners send Derek Lowe and Jason Varitek to Red Sox for Heathcliff Slocumb (July 31, 1997)
Lowe had a 6.96 ERA halfway through his rookie season with the Mariners before he was dealt. Since then, he's flourished with the Red Sox, first as a reliever, and this year as one of the best, if not the best, starters in the AL. He's got a lifetime ERA of 3.32; this year he's 15-5 with a 2.13 ERA. Varitek, a switch-hitting catcher, has been a solid backstop for the Red Sox; this season, coming back off a broken elbow suffered in June 2001, he's hitting .284 with eight HR and 42 RBI.
Slocumb, a veteran reliever who had been an All-Star with the Phillies in 1995 and had saved 31 games for the Red Sox in 1996, tossed only 95 innings for Seattle in 1997 and 1998, going 2-9 with 13 saves and an ERA up around 5.
