    In my Al league with rules all trades have to be to make your team better this year. Until dump season.
    Team A trades Bogaret ,Merrifield,Matz, Martin Perez
    Team B trades: Brandon Lowe, J Wendle,Nate Pearson, Christian Javier

    There is a very small chance that Javier, Pearson and Lowe are as valuable as Bogaerts and Merrified. Less than 5% I would guess without thinking much about it. If this is a salary league the salaries for each player would provide more context.

    Lowe is11 opt
    Pearson is 5 rookie
    Javier is 18 first year

    Merrfield is lost after this year
    Borgaerts is 36 opt

    So it appears the team acquiring Pearson, Javier, and Lowe is looking a bit to the future. I think is unlikely that they or anyone would expect this trade to make them better this season, although things could break right and it might turn out that way, it just doesn't seem likely

    Yeah, that's a tough rule without some kind of empirical test you need to pass
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert...

    I don't think I'd make that trade, but if I'm the guy trading away Bogaerts, one of the available arguments is: "Perez and Matz suck, they wouldn't ever be in my starting lineup, I expect Pearson back soon so I'm getting 4 starters back in place of 2. I'm high on all 4 players I'm getting in return. While young and unproven, I think Pearson and Javier will improve my pitching staff, which is my biggest weakness, dramatically. I'm punting steals and average this year as a strategic play to win other categories so Merrifield and Bogaerts are less valuable to me. And personally I need the overall team depth more than the quality of 2 specific hitters this year in order to compete."

    I'm not sure how you can argue against something like that.
