The Chicago Cubs have a long and storied history, beginning in in 1876 in as a founding member of the fledgling National League. One of the two oldest currently active U.S. professional sports clubs, (the other is the Atlanta Braves), the Cubs have many victories and successes to their credit.
The Cubs have also got many dreadful trades in their history. From questionable free agent signings to decisions not to re-sign highly talented players, these startling trades will make you wonder if the managers were even sober at the time.
Bad trades can set clubs several years back. We have compiled a list of the Cubs’ 15 worst trades since 1960. This part of Cubs history can be a little depressing but hey, we need to be given credit for picking the 15 absolute worst from so many options!
This might not be an easy read, so brace yourselves…
