BN M. Byrd (Phi - CF)
P S. Estes (Col - SP)

for

OF C. Beltrán (KC - CF)

Estes has 2 wins, 1.29 ERA and 0.71 WHIP. That's better than Halladay, Prior, Shcmidt, Mussina, etc.

He's a fantasy monster.

A person in my league was trying to give me Matt Stairs and Ted Lilly for Troy Glaus and Javier Vazquez.

The worst part about the offers of 3 or 4 bench players for 1 superstar, is the fact that even if you looked over their deal and thought for a second that the 4 players being offered where all pretty solid C+ or B- players, It would require you to also dump 2 or 3 players from your current roster, in order to make room for them. :-t
