Chacon for Beckett..NL keeper league...He needed saves and I was leading in saves.

Chacon hasn't had a save since the trade and has 2 loses and an ERA about 10.50.

Beckett has since gone on the DL but it's a keeper and I'll have him for $7 next season. ;-D ;-D

I haven't made too many trades this year, but my best was probably:

I get M. Mussina, D. Lee
I give C. Zambrano, D. Riske

It hasn't paid off so far, but Mussina and Lee have both picked it up recently, and I believe that they will finish with better numbers than Zambrano.

three weeks into the season:

I got : Jim Thome
Joel Pineiro

I gave: Matt Morris

Two weeks ago:

I got: Andy Petite
I gave: Vinny Castilla (when he was red hot and the other guy had Bill Mueller go down)

Andy's since been on the DL, but I still really like that deal...

I have been wheeling/dealing in 3 of my four leagues quite a bit and have made some great trades, and one's that have also bit me in the A**.
Great deals-
give chavez/gibbons/Lowe for Berkman/Manny/Pettite.. then Pettitte/Juan DL Gone became C Zam and Pods.
Give Ensberg get Wolf
Give O Cabrera/Borowski/Willis/MacDougal get Schmidt/Wagner
Payton/Ensberg get Huff
nen/Willis get M Rivera
Green/C Patterson/Contreras get Pods/C Zam/Pineiro

Trades that started off looking good-
Millar/Durham/F Garcia/Lohse for Sexson/Oswalt (at least Oswalt is healthy- knock on wood)
Kolb/C Zam get Lopez/Jeter

The jury is still out on these-
gave Pettitte/Pavano/Julio got Hudson
gave Peavy/Nathan got Beckett
Gave Baldelli/K Wells got Santana
give Beckett/V Castilla/Pods get Beltran
Ponson/Grissom get Green/Lowe (then dealt Lowe in 1st trade)
gave Bonds/Durham got C Zam and Soriano
