Nothing shady IMO - both guys tying to better their teams, and the bad news on Guerra after the fact is just crappy luck - it should have no bearing. Guerra is worth more than Salas and Nova combined, and A-Rod and Santana is kind of a wash, so it was really a pretty good deal. Guerra is just some other guy right now, but could get a shot at the job later, maybe not - either way, revisionist history in these cases has no place in the discussion IMO. What if someone traded Votto for Verlander and then two days after it was accepted Votto tore his Achilles and was out for the year - would you veto? I think not.
