I just traded Reyes

It was a blockbuster deal and Reyes was a throw-in for the sake of balance. The other guy really needs saves. The deal was done at 6 p.m. and Reyes' injury come to light one hour later. I feel indebted to compensate the guy somehow.

Caveat emptor. It happened after the trade was made. He knew the risks about old glass Reyes.

You got the latin right, yes. Sorry, Danny- thought it was a more well-known expression.

But you don't have to give him anything. If you want to help him out, tell him about http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com. Or, if you don't want to help him that much, tell him about http://www.fantasybaseballforums.com

But you owe him nothing.

Good call ;-D . Whenever I feel bad about a move that I made with another owner, I advise them on a pickup if their is room on their roster.
