This inst really a fair trade....teh Cubs are trading a great young player for a mediocre replacement, a expensive pitcher and some spect guy. Also he is giving a meh spect and cash, so this makes it even worse....

i agree

Cubs have no cash to give.

The thing that confuses me is that the team that takes on a chunk of salary also gives $4 million cash. According to the rule below:

X. The League's financial status has been completed and all players have been adjusted to their real world salaries. All teams are on a budget of 80 million bucks, even though some are way over. If you would like to include cash in the deal, look at your "$ for Free Agents" in your financial report. This is your available cash.
- You can send up to 3 million dollars OR as much cash as salary you're sending; budgets will be adjusted accordingly. For example, if you're sending a player that makes 15 million dollars and a player that makes 3 million dollars, the most you can send is 18. If you're trading players making less than 3 million dollars, 3 million is the max.
- If one or more teams involved in a deal are over their budget, you must get salaries to match within 2 million dollars.
- You cannot send cash to another team if you are over budget.
- There must be one player from each team involved in each trade.

Isn't this trade illegal? The Cubs are sending more cash than player salaries, and more than $3 mil.

Tim is correct, the Cubs are only sending 300K in salaries to the Rangers.

The trade is not unfair, but it is illegal.

Once again the deal is illegal, Campos' salary is only 300,000 so the Cubs cannot send cash
No, I think the max is 3 mil, regardless of salary. I think it's valid.

edit: hehe, "nm" is unpossible now, for I have quoted you! :D
