Term for trades when...

It'd be neat to have a term for when you pull off a trade that you know you're winning out on, and you get away with it. Then that feeling of guilty satisfaction washes over you and you get a crazed look in your eyes.

Or is that just me?

That is just a razztastic trade when the other guy over values a player we don't. I think a better post trade nickname would be for an injury that happens right after a trade. Does that go under Murphy's law?

I thought Daniel Murphy's law was all Mets prospects are doomed to failure.

Nah, Daniel Murphy's law states that fringe players on badly managed teams display an inverse relationship between their quality of play and their number of at bats. See also David Murphy.
