Team b (10:18:33 AM): depending on who you offer
Ok, I missed this line in my previous reading of the conversation. Having seen that, the trade is painted in a much more flattering light than how I viewed it before.
There is, however, a mostly apathetic, cooperative vibe that I get from Owner B. When you are trying to win a fantasy league, you aren't "cooperative," when talking trade. He'd at least play his hand a little bit in the negotiations. Although Team B does probably needed pitching, in an 8 team league, the difference between Bonderman and the best of what's out there in FA probably isn't extreme. I'd wager that it is less extreme than the difference between Bonderman and his next weakest starter, but that's just speculation on my part. Of course, in this tiny 8 person league he could have easily refilled his roster with capable hurlers and had them all along. In an 8 person league I'd bet people as good as Ted Lilly, Oliver Perez and Tom Gorzelanny are unowned, not an extreme difference from Bonderman.
Figgins is probably the rarer commodity and therefore more valuable. In either case, I don't like seeing someone who is merely facilitating another owner.
