Worst Braves Trades Ever

I was thinking that since we are approaching free-agent signings and hot stove league time that we should list the trades that the Braves have historically made that you feel set the team backwards.  I have my top 3.

3.  December 13, 2003.  Atlanta acquired J.D. Drew and Eli Marrero from St. Louis. The Cardinals, who were looking to reduce payroll, received the Braves' top pitching prospect in Adam Wainwright, as well as Ray King and Jason Marquis

2.  July 30, 2007.  Braves get Mark Teixeira and Ron Mahay from the Rangers , while Texas acquired C/1B Jarrod Saltalamacchia, SS Elvis Andrus, and three pitchers: Neftali Perez, Matt Harrison, and Beau Jones in the deal for Teixeira.

1.  August 28, 1983.  Brett Butler and Brook Jacoby were sent by the Braves to the Cleveland Indians to complete an earlier deal (the Braves traded players to be named later and $150,000 to the Indians for Len Barker).  This trade greatly affected my youth and was the first time I was made at the Braves (as a 9-year-old boy).


Thoughts?  What are your worst Braves trades ever?
