except you're talking about $8.3 million for a reliever vs $7 million for a starting position player.

What's your point? It's not a "salary dump" when you take on MORE money. It's a salary dump when Arizona packages Touki Toussaint with Bronson Arroyo for nothing to "dump" Arroyo's salary. If we had traded Clippard for a low-A prospect flyer, that would be a salary dump.

Trading a guy who is more expensive and worse than the guy you get back is not a "salary dump". It's yet another good trade by our excellent GM.
