Good luck trading Vazquez, Lidge, Papi

While the Philadelphia Phillies made first baseman Ryan Howard one of the most untradeable players in baseball by awarding him a new monster contract, Howard gets dealt all the time in fantasy leagues, albeit no more or less than other top players. Nobody in a fantasy league is, by definition, truly untradeable, including the great Albert Pujols and this year's monster starting pitcher, Ubaldo Jimenez. There's always a proper price for the top players, even if you must overpay (like the Phillies might have for Howard). I own Jimenez in a few leagues, for example, and while I laugh at some of the offers I've received, as I've told people, everyone can be moved at any time. Just make the right offer.
