Is this the saddest one? At least Adam Jones went and did something (well, a lot) for Baltimore. The same can't really be said for these guys.

Brandon Morrow and Josh Fields had good runs as releivers for a while, having an impact over multiple seasons on good teams. While they are definitely a piece that you would want on your team, it isn't something that you are hoping to get out of the 5th pick and the 20th pick.

With Clement, he was supposed to be this big stick catcher, but never amounted to anything. Even after he left Seattle. The same with Aumont, as he was traded before touching the mound in Seattle. He would go on to throw four limited seasons early in his career.

This one is easy. It's an F for Bavasi. No doubt about it. Gross.

Oh, and he traded Jones. F-
