Lastings/Trith/Dizzel it's late in the season
a week ago before Frieri blew up I could see trading him for Greinke if I was overloaded with starters in an innings limited league for some saves that I needed. I also could see moving Felix for power in the same overloaded starter position as the 1st trade and I could also see moving Stanton on a terrible Miami team for starters where I needed them. Me thinks you're judging these moves in a vacuum but they're being made in the last third of a fantasy season where needs dictate your moves.
