I actually traded Shelton straight up for Peavy at the start of the year.

In another league, I got Crawford and Burnett for Swisher and Ollie Perez. :-o

I recently got a good one. There were a few FB e-mails waiting for me. First, I was offered his Renteria and Ensberg for my Jeter and Chipper Jones. It was quickly withdrawn, then ammended: now its his Renteria/Ensberg/Wilkerson for my Jeter/Jones/Teixeira. As if the guy was thinking after he made the first offer: "Wait a minute. That's still not good enough. I better add in Wilkerson for Teix to make it better." Yeah, like I'd really want to do a trade swapping position for position in which I downgrade at every spot.

If you are getting kazmir and howard side, i would do it in a heartbeat. Kazmimr is a little downgrade in pitching but howard is definitely an upgrade in 1b or util, unless u got pujols and hafner.

Im pretty sure most people would take the Kazmir and Howard side, but its not a horrible trade. Your still getting Liriano, who righthas been the best pitcher in baseball since he got a rotation spot.
