Worst straight-up trade EVER

Not sure if that was directed to me, but if so, Patterson isn't on my team, and he never will be on my team (well, this season at least). Of course, Furcal isn't either.

But...that's the point. A gm should have the right to deal mediocrity like Furcal for a pitcher would could turn out to have an awesome season. Furcal is Furcal. He's a middle of the pack ss in a 12 team league. That's it. If this was Arod being traded for Patterson, I'd agree with you. But it isn't. It's Furcal. Vetoing this deal is beyond ludicrous

Or Oliver Perez's, for that matter. It's possible that Patterson will fade, but it's also possible that he'll put up a nice season. He could easily end up more valuable than Furcal this season. Certainly, he's not proven, but that doesn't mean he won't have a good season. Obviously, it's not a guarantee, but I definitely don't think this trade should be vetoed. Patterson's start this year has earned him some value, and regardless of how much you value him personally, I think that this value can't be ignored when judging the fairness of a trade.

Slomo and I play in a 12 team league with MI and CI. That is why Furcal is more valuable to me.
