    Player A. Assgrabber gets on a train from Arizona along with $450k, scented oils and a Bette Midler CD headed for Wisconsin. It's winter there, so Assgrabber packed a couple extra pairs of long johns. Player B. Bergermeister boards a tour bus with a hot tub, two farsighted Brazilian girls, a carton of cheez whiz and eighteen boxes of fruit loops. Boy how that Bergermeister can party! He used to paint Fon Du Lac red, back in his younger days (he's going on 31 now, but is still in prime prospect range)!

    Like WIS would have to part with something as useful as a hot tub in one of his trades

Nothing sucks worse than scouring 4 teams and 100 different players just to find the one guy I'm supposed to add to a trade.

    This also goes for listing the player's position. Please make sure you list him along with what the *game* says he plays, not where you might be playing him that week. If you slot a guy in LF because he has range there, but he's listed as a SS in the game, it makes it that much more difficult to track him down if I'm looking for OFs.

    Oh, the hot tub wasn't part of the trade, that comes back. Just the primary mode of WIS transportation.

    What is there to bash about Brazilian babes and hot tubs?

    Guys... please, please, please put the positions and organization level of traded players in your post (Bruno....). It's not fun to scan through all 5 levels trying to find some scrub, only to find him on the DL after 5 minutes.

    Bump. It's 1:46 AM and I'm about to kill myself processing these trade posts.

    Maybe it's time to implement a policy whereby any trade that does not properly include positions/levels simply doesn't get processed until it does.

    It seems like a small thing, but it's hard to get across how much easier it makes the simmer's job when trying to process trades. And we've only been asking people (nicely) to do this for what, 3 years? It shouldn't be a foreign concept anymore.

    30 seconds worth of consideration to make Steve/Cuervo/whoever's job easier isn't a lot to ask. If people can't be bothered, then maybe they shouldn't be bothered either.

    Bump. PLEASE put organization levels in your trade post, and make everything clear by separating each team and what they're giving up.

    For historical reference, might it make sense to also include the season (or calendar game year) of the trade? Like:

    2045 LAS - HOL 01/31/13
