In public, the best trades I have made (the only trades I have made as well) have been I gave Finley and Durazo for B.Giles (although he hasn't been producing lately. And I gave Juan Gone for Nevin.
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Trades I've made:

Thome and Isringhausen for Soriano and Kolb

Ramirez and Nen for Beltran

Both are fair. Neither are eye popping. However, Beltran's en fuego right now...so I'm happy.

this is mmmy 2nd and ive always been in leagues where owners arent too stupid so ive never pulled off anything too rhidiculous... the best trade ive ever done was this preseason- Colon for David Ortiz
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

One guy in our league last year had sent me about 150 varied offers for Alfonso Soriano BEFORE the Allstar break. I decided I needed some pitching and arranged a Soriano for Wood swap but managed to work the 'gosh, I'll need a second baseman too' and he tossed in Marcus Giles...right as Giles went totally gonzo!! Soriano was kind of poopy the second half so I felt like I got the best of him....
