I don't see it as tampering. Usually an owner shops with several teams before deciding to do a trade. Say for example team A is offering Chavez/Peavy for Rolen/Ollie Perez from team B. Team B turns around and shops Rolen, or Ollie, or both to see what they can get in return and I'm sure they mention the current offer on the table. Of course it ends up being discussed at that point. Not a big deal for teams to discuss trades that are offered. Happens all the time.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
