This is a Private Custom Yahoo league, its 3rd season. Both owners have been in league in all seasons. Many of us know one another several years via softball team. Everyone in league knows someone, if not everyone. I think Owner B is just frustrated and is making trades for trades sake. I mean, who gets excited about Penny, he's a serviceable starter that shows signs of 2nd half collapse, and Beltre, has scuffled for several seasons, especially in the SEA lineup.
Owner B quote --
"there was actually a thought process that also went into my decision. Who knows if A-Rod returns? If he does, my loss but at least for 15 - 20 days I get production from 3B and pitching. Its a calculated risk I'm taking but in my mind worth it. Whatever, I already told Crest [Owner A] the trade would be vetoed by the Moral Majority"
