Now, I understand every single one was in different scenarios, but there is now denying that it is hard to get actual value back for a star player. Homer did just that. Twice. In one hour.
Three of the four in your example demanded a trade, which almost guarantees a poor return for the team who has been forced into making a deal. Homer didn't have to deal with any of that ********, and was dealing players who have a great deal of value both in terms of playing ability and their attractive cap hits.
Not equal. Not even close. If Homer had been taken to the cleaners on either of those trades, he should have been fired on the spot.
