Is it unfair? The 9th ranked player in yahoo for the 122nd and the 49th.
first off, don't go by yahoo rankings -- these are usually worthless.
as for the trade -- look at what categories each team needs help with and how many points they can gain in each.
the team that is getting pods and guardado -- does it need a handful of saves and steals to jump ahead in the standings? how about the team that is getting Manny? does it need a bump in the power and average stats?
in vacuum I wouldn't want to do a trade like this, but in the endgame of a roto season it might very well be a clutch (hehe... sue me for using that word) trade.
