Worst move: Trading two young left-handers for Travis Snider

The Orioles made plenty of questionable moves and ones that didn't pan out leading up to and during the 2015 season. The worst was the trade for outfielder Travis Snider. Snider didn't work out as a replacement for Nick Markakis, and was eventually released. But what made it such a bad move was that it cost two young, unheralded left-handers, Stephen Tarpley and Steven Brault. Tarpley, 22, went 11-4 with a 2.48 ERA in Low-A ball. Brault, 23, went 9-3 with a 2.00 ERA at Double-A.
