I take it that this is some kind of dynasty or keeper league otherwise Strasbugh wouldn't even be a factor in this trade. I think team "A" is giving up a lot. At the begining of this season Shields went undrafted in most leagues. If Shields continues his success in the 2nd half, I'll be a beliver in 2012. Right now Shields is just a pitcher having a good first half. Longoria is still a 1st rounder. Even if Shields continues his ways, he will be at best a 2nd rounder next year.

It is not a keeper league but Strasburg will likely make a few starts this year.

Redraft I think it's close - pretty big buy-low, sell-high type of deal, but certainly one that is intended to help both teams and isn't unfair in any way. Contrary to the above posters nonchalance about it probably being a keeper/dynasty league, I'd be crying collusion until the cows came home if someone dealt Strasburg and Longo for Shields ...

Dude, please stop posting every trade you disagree with in this forum. Post them in the trade/keepers/waivers forum, that's what it's there for. :-t

Just put your posts in the correct forum. That is all he was asking. No need to make the remarks.
