I botched my season today. what I should have done is trade Middlebrooks and Beckett for Kendry Morales and Buchholz, and trade CJ Wilson and a scrub for Morneau and R. Soriano. It's a salary cap / dynasty league, and Morales and Buchholz are in their last year, while MDBK is in his first at $10 (for next two years / more if kept longer) and Wilson at $9 and kept for next year. Lots of value that I could have unpacked for a second closer, increased O, and a pitcher who now is doing about as well as Wilson.
Instead, I traded MDBK, Beckett, and 2 extra parts for Ichiro and howie kendrick plus 2 spare parts. Could still do the Morneau deal, but I can't get the make piece of Buchholz for Wilson.
