I sent Verlander, Hart, Kershaw
I got Peavy, Markakis, Jenks
My trade partner has lost 4 weeks in a row and is losing again this week. I think I got the better deal but for 09 and beyond, it is pretty even in our format (keep 5 plus 1 rook).
I think one thing that we are going to look into implementing against fire sales is to maybe give monthly prizes or maybe even reward a 1st/2nd half split winners. 3 teams already started selling and some owners who are not benefiting from the fire sales are pissed.
see, these arent typical "firesale" deals. a fire sale deal would be
matsui for milledge
thome for saltalamacchia
mike young for mike moustakas
the two trades that you guys have presented, are just unfair, unbalanced trades. it doesnt have anything to do with firesales or trading for the future. its just two managers who are boneheads. not that i think they should be vetoed, but making a aug 1 date before you do something isnt right either.
