An Exercise in Trade Mathematics

Okay, so let me see if I can prove my work here.

Trade, Spring, 2010
IN - Troy Perkins
OUT - Fred, 1st round pick, allocation money
Trade, Fall/Winter, 2010
IN - Steve Cronin, allocation money
OUT - Troy Perkins
Trade, Spring, 2011
IN - Fred
OUT - 2nd round pick
Doing a little trade-algebra ninjutsu makes Perkins, Fred, and the allocation money* cancel out, leaving us with the equation:
Steve Cronin = 1st round pick + 2nd round pick

Math is hard.

* assuming the allocation money is roughly equal—could go either way
