So rank it. What was worse?

Faithful Citizen Spruce e-mailed this link:

Joe Morgan to Cincinnati for Lee Helms and John Mayberry. It's never good when a trade recap begins as such: Not only was this the worst trade in Astro history, but it was completely unnecessary.

That's bad. Cincinnati went on to dominate, win two World Series, while Joe Morgan was a back-to-back MVP. What was worse? Obviously, without the benefit of hindsight, it's hard to say. But if it's not made, we don't have to hear Joe Morgan talk about Cincinnati every Sunday night during the season.If the Tejada trade still feels as terrible in 2013 as it does now, it might just pull it off.

I still think the Tejada trade will end up being worse. More players were involved and let's face it, the Morgan trade happened before I was born. If it happened before my birthday than it just doesn't register in my world.
