This is why I dont like AL/NL leagues only. Blockbuster trades can either ruin a team, or whoever had 1st waiver priority to get the guy who was traded. Not very fun, IMO.

there are ways to counteract this, I believe.

One is to just have the waiver priority be the reverse draft order, although with only a couple of big trades a year this might not make a difference.

The other is to compensate owners that lose players to interleague trades by giving them the priority on the players that come back. i.e. the dude that loses dotel gets first dibs on beltran. This suffers from the obvious drawback of "what happens if a stud gets traded for a bunch of prospects in a non-keeper league?"
