    Take 2 - Swingers and Jacks swap

    Let's try this again. The Swingers give up 3+ years of Nick Castallenos, top-25 prospect, for 6 weeks of Dan Haren, coming off the DL. We did look for a variety of different trades, but there were no active MLBers I could offer that improved the Jacks without significantly weakening me for this year, which would totally remove the point of trading a prospect for an active player.

    Be seeing you,

    Does that mean the Jacks don't think this is a fair trade, without Happ or equivalent?

    No it means that sometimes you have to make things look better for the league to accept it.
    I have had to add pieces before to make things look better for the people not involved.
    It is too easy to just hit the objection button without looking into a trade in depth.
    Quit being so cheap and make a trade or two and see what I mean!!!!!

    Not in the league any more, but I totally agree with miko. It's not the Jacks don't think it's a fair trade, it's that they're afraid they won't be able to run their team the way they want unless they make things prettier for people who are objecting.
