Yep, that's pretty much the extent of it.
I've been very slow to trade with this bunch so far, probably because I was just getting to know them and there was almost nobody I really wanted to part with.
But the reality is that I had several veterans who were due to be FA's at the end of the season and I already over-committed to three veteran pitchers (I hate to react out of a sense of desperation, but that's pretty much what I did) and I knew full well that there was no reason for me to keep Pablo for another season, even though despite his age he still has some value as a player. Though certainly he is not a starter, whatever he might think. And I have been wanting to unload Harrison even though he provided some value in 1965 season as a part-time starter. As you can see above, he's not one of my best character guys. And he's pitched pretty horribly this season. So I was happy to get anything in exchange for him at this point. And I felt it important to free up some budget space. Even with this trade, given how stingy my owner is, we are still over-budget for this season in terms of player payroll.
