lukewarm stove thread

Wood-cooking-stove-cast-iron-stove-scandia-cottage_medium 

it's that time of year again. the time when people decide which three or four minor leaguers they detest the most and then propose to trade them for other team's all stars, in some perverse exploration of the quality for quantity trade.

in order to keep all this (stuff) in one place, here's an official hot stove thread. enjoy, ladies and gents. have fun and don't get hurt.

DIRECTIONS: for best results, find a previous trade which has actually occurred. propose a trade that reasonably resembles the prior trade. directly analogize proposed trade to actual trade. otherwise, we get endless iterations of "nick stavinoha and dan descalso for stephen drew, what do you think?" trading our bad players for their good players is always a good deal. that's why those trades never get done.

INGREDIENTS: organic bullshit, idle thoughts, pipe dreams, wishful thinking, actual analysis, aspartame, red dye #5.

CAUTION: you should put down any fragile items and swallow any beverages you may be drinking prior to reading thread. anyone considering posting a new fanpost regarding a proposed trade or free agent signing should make sure that the new fanpost contains sufficient actual analysis that addressing the same proposal in the comments below would not give you sufficient space for discussion.

ALLERGY INFORMATION: fanpost comments may have been produced or packaged in a basement facility with tree nuts, peanuts, malt-based beverages, dairy, or soy.
