Do you think that it is possible to pick up J. Santana on Milwaukee and trade him for a fantasy stud???
Is this ethical??
Would it be vetoed??
Is there ANY chance that it may work??

Yes.
Very no... do you even have to ask?
Probably, I'm not sure if I would vote to veto, but many would.
Yes, but I (and most everyone) would consider you an *** for doing it.

I did it with E. Chavez last year in a public league. Its possible, and not very ethical.

You may be able to pull it off, but you'll be hated and you'll certainly go to hell when you die. :-b

Most likely it will backfire and you'll lose face in front of your whole league. If someone tried to deceive me like that, I'd post a notice and let everyone know.

that is almost SO bad, shame on the person for even falling for it. I almost think it is so laughable that if you parted with a player without so much as looking at the team next to the name, you don't deserve him.

That said, I did it to my brother once in fantasy football. I trade r. williams from the colts back when ricky williams was the stud to have.

Looks like Yahoo! was reading this thread.

It's now showing Jo Santana and Ju Santana.

I would blame the person for not checking which player he is getting. IN yahoo, it would have his team and rank, so if someone accepted, I could hardly feel sorry for them. Sort of like people who somehow drop a player they didnt want to.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Yahoo made his name Ju. Santana and Johan Jo. Santana. That vowel makes a huge difference.

a couple years ago in my football league a guy dropped R.Williams thinking it was the other one from Texas Tech. Funny stuff.
