I don't remember the exact situation but it was before ST. deano had the cap space to claim said player but didn't claim him. Then dumped some high salary for the WW cleared player. Salary dumps are frowned upon. However, there are simple work arounds. Rather than re-do the trade for a BL-quality player, and the guidelines for such are very lenient, deano got butthurt about it.
The fact that the minor league player cleared waivers before ST was a strong indication that he was not a current or future BL-quality player. Which is the basic requirement for trading a BL salary.
