Curt Schilling, 1991 Score #788
"January 10, 1991: Traded by the Baltimore Orioles with Steve Finley and Pete Harnisch to the Houston Astros for Glenn Davis."
Yep, that's it. 126.8 total WAR (wins above replacement) out, 0.1 total WAR in. But on the bright side, the Orioles weren't the only team to trade away Curt Schilling in a lousy deal. Check this out:
April 2, 1992: Traded by the Houston Astros to the Philadelphia Phillies for Jason Grimsley.
July 26, 2000: Traded by the Philadelphia Phillies to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Omar Daal, Nelson Figueroa, Travis Lee and Vicente Padilla.
November 28, 2003: Traded by the Arizona Diamondbacks to the Boston Red Sox for Michael Goss (minors), Casey Fossum, Brandon Lyon and Jorge de la Rosa.
That's four trades where the team moving Schilling didn't get much of anything in return. Still, none of the others hold a candle to the Orioles' stink bomb. People don't forget.
