Joel Sherman of the NY Post had nothing better to do, so he looked at each of the 30 major league baseball teams, their needs and their surplus, and came up with this 30 team trade, involving 71 players. Needs included salary slashing, rebuilding or finding player to fill specific voids in order to contend. This appeared in last Sunday?s suburban (early) edition. When I went to look for a link to post, it was no longer there. Later game-related news and articles had replaced the article.

I?ll show the team, who they give up and who they get. But I have not typed the reasons he gave that were beneficial for each team.

Tejara is our only real fall back on Pavano, and good long reliever besides Vlad. We really don't need Red, but we really don't need Long either........Who the hell is John McDonald? But that's one crazy trade proposition, even if it's a joke...........

2 new guys?????? :rolleyes:
Sherman obviously had a little too much time on his hands. But to be honest, I would love to see one big deal like that at some point. Imagine the absolute cooperation that would be needed to pull something like that off. And that is the exact reason why we will never see such a big deal, not enough cooperation throughout the league.

Exactly. There would almost no cooperation for a 30-team trade, none the less what there is in a 2-team trade..............

That would be a gangsta trade put instead of trading Redman we trade Pierre and get Long because Long and Pierre both play CF

Only one problem with that.

Sherman proposed trading Redmond, not Redman.

And while your point is taken regarding Long and Pierre, your trade must include someone that fills a void for another team. Sherman saw Redmond and not Pierre as the player needed by another team.

later.......
