It's a sad story, I felt he was damn good but I think he may be headed for the end of his (successful) career. Of course he'll still pitch, but it will either be out of the pen or as a starter minus his slider (which would make him quite mediocre).
haha our league has a contract system, so things get complicated. And yes, there were about 10 players in the deal. Having won the title already, I traded several high-salary very good players for Liriano and some rising palyers, but with much lower slaries. I also got a decent bit of salary $$ and much flexible cap room. It was either keep Howard and one or two other players, or about 4 players like I can keep now that I couldn't have otherwise (like the D-Train).
