This time of year usually mades the idiots come out of the woodwork. For some reason people who casually follow baseball seem to think they're qualified to make whatever trade they want.

Here's a couple of good ones I just heard.

1. Some guy just called in to MJH and suggested trading Iguchi for Soriano.

2. You're gonna have to read this one yourself... (the first post)

Share your others, make sure it's something you've actually heard though because I have a feeling this thread would be over run by teal otherwise.

When trades and dust settle

White Sox get:

Jason Schmidt
Scott Eyre (had to correct myself)
Aubrey Huff
Billy Wagner
Jimmy Rollins

Phillies get:
A.J. Burnett
Danny Baez

Marlins get:
Damaso Marte
Brandon McCarthy (who has looked good recently, value gone up?)
half of lowell's contract :)

Giants get:
Jose Contreras
Ryan Sweeney
one Phillies minor leauge players

Devil Rays get:
Mike Lowell
Joe Borchard
Felix Diaz
(throws in willie harris for fun)

I kind of like this deal, with exception not sure which minor league players we would trade to who and what we might get from phillies since they stated wanting burnett and baez. i say go for it. it would be a nice upgrade and yes sounds like a mega deal. i personally think schmidt is better than burnett anyhow. what does everyone think?

Oh....my....God.....:o:

My all time personal favorite was on this site....

Borchard and Shingo for Derek Lee :roflmao:

Absolutely rediculous. About as moronic as Steve Phillips' 27-man, 15 player deal.

Those guys would all look nice on the South Side. Too bad we won't get all of them. maybe 1 or 2.

A Cub fan I know was pretty set on the "fact" that the Cubs were going to trade Corey Patterson for MIGUEL CABRERA!

They might be able to get Miguel Olivo for Patterson.:redneck

Oh my god, how could the M's trade future HOFer Olivo for that bum!!

Funny how both those guys have or had long stints in the minors this season

Nothing was crazier than the 300 post thread about a potential OUTDOOR press conference (while it was raining in Chicago)...which of course never took place.

One of the finest moments I have experienced here. We all jumped on that thread like a pack of wild dogs. Then after the dogs were never fed, they just started making wise cracks for 16 more pages.

That thread was the most incredible display of sarcasm and incongruity I have ever seen my entire life.

They had to call in the SWAT equivalent of the teal police, or would that be the teal army?

This is kind of teal looking...
