"Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that."
Actually i had forgotten about that one .I thought i had gotten rizzo in the Mike trout trade with A.D.
I too thought that in every trade Dan turned lead into gold but he has made some stinkers. If you make a lot of deals there are going to be some that turn out awful for you.
I thought I was "selling high" on J D Martinez & "buying low" on Mike Minor. Minor destroyed my whip a couple times then was benched & later dropped.
I also traded top prospect Jameson Taillon in a pre season deal for Justin Masterson who also destroyed my whip a couple times then was benched & later dropped.
I'm less of a trade guy than a waiver wire guy. I got Cobb, Griffin and Harvey on the waiver wire. Britton too i think.
This year i found Hahn, Arrieta and Alvarez. But I have trouble finding offense that way, though I have had decent luck finding catchers at the right time.
Suck it up cupcake.
Make me your best offer for a deal in which you receive Pedro Alvarez and Desmond Jennings. I'm looking to make some trades to help me win this year.

something weird happened today. Glenn & I made a 2 for 2 trade. I have 2 guys on my DL who are no longer on the real life DL. So when I accepted the trade I expected to get a message saying that I had to fix my roster issue before the trade would go through. I know you get that message if you go to add a free agent in that scenario. Has it always been the case that you can make a trade if you have a guy in a DL spot who isn't still on the real life DL?
