I saw a Chase Utley for Robinson Cano. I like Cano to rebound, but I don't think I would make that trade in an AL-only league ...

There is also an Utley for Felipe Lopez. I can only assume that one has "and you can sleep with my wife" thrown in to make it even.

That one just flew over your head... ;-)

In my main 10 team league with my friends, Chad Cordero (this was when he his velocity was way down and he was going to lose his closing job) was traded for Matt Kemp. He just traded me Joe Nathan and I guess he wanted a closer, but I guess he didn't do his research before hand.

I don't like to veto, but he was trading a guy who was throwing in the 70s for an up and coming stud OF to a guy with a pretty formidable OF.

I'm in a money league with with my friends, and last week the one guy sent me C. Granderson and JJ Hardy for J. Peralta. My first instinct was to look around the page a bit before I accepted because I was afraid I was missing something. Definately a WTF moment in my book.
