Babe Ruth. Johnny Damon and the traitor Jacoby Ellsbury.
kevin youkilis 🤮
Andrew Miller as well.
Nothing compares to the Stephen Drew for Kelly Johnson trade.
Roger Clemens, Wade Boggs
How can you forget Yankees legend Adam Ottavino? Allegedly he's even better than the first guy on your list.
Mike Myers and Ethan Embree
Can’t leave out Alfredo Aceves here
Rickey Henderson and Mike Lowell.
Phillies legend Pedro Martinez is much more well known for being a Mets star!
First of all....
He will always be a Montreal expo to me
Kolten Wong lol all is forgiven
I love him too much to be mad
Orel Hershiser (Giants). That was just wrong.
Joe Davis' son and I had the same reaction when we each found out.
duke snider as well and jackie robinson was traded to the giants but chose to retire instead of play for us
I’m a White Sox fan. Sammy Sosa and George Bell each played for us and up north
Also as a Sox fan, Jim Thome always comes to mind as someone whom I hated when he played for Cleveland but loved when he played for the Sox.
Magglio Ordonez is the first guy who comes to mind for me.
Zach Wheeler for the Phillies. Glavine for the Braves. Yogi Berra for the Yankees.
Jose Bautista (True story, folks)
Alex Wood, Jake McGee, Tony Watson, Jason Schmidt, Orel Hershiser, Jeff Kent, Juan Uribe, Jack Clark, Brett Butler, Dusty Baker, Candy Maldonado…
Brian Wilson lol
Sergio Romo, for two different teams!
Sergio Romo, Russ Ortiz, Charlie Culberson, Guillermo Mota, Brad Penny, Cody Ross, Dave Roberts, Marquis Grissom, Brian Johnson...
Indeed it does
Scott Rolen and Jim Edmonds
Ryan Ludwick, Edgar Renteria, Skip Schumaker
Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui, Kelly Johnson, David Price, Grady Sizemore, Wade Boggs, Fred McGriff, Kelly Shoppach, our own manager, Jose Molina, that’s off the top of my head.
Jonny Gomes, Eric Hinske, Manny Ramirez, Rocco Baldelli
Our coaching staff is full of traitors:
Mets legend Kelly Johnson!
Cardinals- Jim Edmonds, Ryan Theriot, Lee Smith
You forgot Jason Heyward and Dexter Fowler.
You forgot Patrick Wisdom
John Lackey, Jon Jay, Daniel Descalso, Jason Motte, Shelby Miller, Jason Heyward...the list goes on and on of Cardinals/Cubs. Unsettling really
Rays legend Matt Garza
I mean who saw that coming though
Mussina, Koji, Miller, WS MVP Steve Pearce
Beltran too. Even if they don't play much, I still consider the Cardinals a rival to the Astros
Most recently, Robinson Chirinos.
Tom Glavine, Braves/Mets
Glavine hurts, but there’s a big list of dudes to play for both. We can’t forget d’Arnaud nor can we let him forget.
not a current example (not sure if there are any?) but i was always a fan of how kelly johnson went braves-mets-braves-mets
Dan Uggla “played” for the Braves as a Marlins sleeper operative
Cubs legends Shelby Miller, Lou Brock, Patrick Wisdom, Jim Edmonds
The Cubs took a shot at rekindling some magic from those early 2010’s Cardinal teams...Jon Jay, Daniel Descalso, Jason Motte, John Lackey, and Shelby Miller have all played for the Cubs
Brian Wilson and Jeff Kent come to mind
Orel Hershiser, Juan Marichal, Dave Roberts, Jeff Kent, Alex Wood, Jake McGee, Tony Watson... I could go on
Tommy John pitched for the Dodgers when they lost to the Yankees in 1978, while Jay Johnstone played for the Yankees that year. In 1981 Tommy John was a pitcher for the Yankees who lost to the Dodgers who happened to have one Jay Johnstone on their roster.
Postseason MVP Daniel Murphy signed with the Nats when he hit FA instead of resigning with us because the Wilpons didn’t want to pay him.
Murph, Asdrúbal, Wheeler, d’arnaud, Beltran, Grandy Man
Roger Clemens, AJ Burnett, Vernon Wells, Eric Hinske, I think Lyle Overbay briefly, the list goes on
BJ Ryan, David price, aj Burnette, Lyle overbay
Ji-Man Choi, Rich Hill, and Chaz Roe were all Yankees at one point. Hill, Jalen Beeks, and Jeffrey Springs were all Red Sox (as was Collin McHugh, though he never played in a game for them).
Mike Mussina, Reggie Jackson, David Wells, Jimmy Key, Brian Roberts, Zach Britton. Tony Tarasco, which is just sickening.
Andy Messersmith was a stud for the Angels snd Dodgers.
Reddick, Lowrie, Fiers, Laureano (in their system)
Mike Mussina. Zack Britton.
Maybe more than any other player, I hated seeing Paul Quantrill as a Yankee.
AJ Pierzynski. I still loved watching him talk shit and foul off 10 pitches every at-bat, though.
Jason Werth is one I think of right off the bat, along with JT Realmuto, Jose Alfaro, Zack Wheeler, and Bryce Harper.
Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe
Torii Hunter, Victor Martinez, Magglio Ordonez
Vladdy just raked against us for years but made up for it all in 2010
Tommy LaStella :(
Tom glavine had a few seasons with the Mets and it was sacrilegious
Aramis Ramirez had a few really good years with the Brewers near the end of his career. Spent his entire career in the NL Central if I'm not mistaken
Nasty Nate (Eovaldi) and Adam Ottovino
George Springer but he hasn’t played much for the Jays
I wouldn't consider the Jays a rival tho
