On A Lighter Note- Fantasy Baseball Rights and Wrongs

For all the fantasy baseball gurus out there, a very enjoyable piece by ESPN's AJ Mass on the right and wrong ways to spin a trade. Mass lists five levels, the first two of which are good solid spin, the last two of which are basically evil and a level 3 which encompasses the gray area of Nick Swisher being third on his team in steals.

Just from personal experience I'd probably want to add a level 3.5, for all those discussions of statistics done in person without the benefit of the internet to look them up. Did you know that for a few years earlier this decade, former Red Sox Trot Nixon hit .300 and averaged 30 home runs and 100 RBI's over a 3 or 4 year span?

No? Well, neither did I, but that's how one owner in our league who shall remain nameless tried to sell the former Sox outfielder.

Die I said he averaged around that in 2003 or 2004 and he hit 27,28,24 and had 88,94,87 and batted around .280. And if he coulda been healthy and played all year in those 3 years he would been right there jerkface.
