    I agree, the Mets traded Nolan Ryan with Frank Estrada, Don Rose and Leroy Stanton to the California Angels for Jim Fregosi back on Dec. 10, 1971. This was one of the worst trades of all time.

    As history played out - Ryan, Tom Seaver, Gary Carter, Rickey Henderson and Eddie Murray - all HOFers. But players are traded and released for various reasons so it's not a negative that these didn't finish their careers with the Mets.

    For a more recent one I would say Scott Kazmir
