Collusion?

Postby bd3521 » Thu May 26, 2005 12:12 pm

This owner just lost Lopez to injury and thinks he needs a stud catcher.
This is a h2h (weekly) points based league and this trade is so lopsided.

·Beltran, Carlos CF NYM (#3 pick overall) - projected 781
·Furcal, Rafael SS ATL (round 9) - projected 550
·Phillips, Jason L. C LA - projected 400

for

·Counsell, Craig SS ARI - project 400
·Pierre, Juan CF FLA - projected 495
·Rodriguez, Ivan C DET (round 9) - projected 481

Is this collusion?

Collusion is when one team is purposly trading top players for junk to enhance one team for the purpose of letting them win (throwing the game) or making someone lose (double teaming)

If this isnt happening, its just a bad trade.

And as stated above. It looks like the guys is trying to get a Catcher and some steals.

Sometimes you have to offer a big name like Beltran to get a deal moving...so not necessarily collusion.

Hmm....so that is like saying sometimes you have to short-sale your team to get a bad deal done and screw yourself?

I sometimes wonder if a top 5 pick ever gets traded without someone asking about colluision or vetoing it on here. That is all I was pointing out. I dont know what kind of team this guy has, so how can I comment on it being a bad deal? He probably could have gotten more, but maybe not. FBB is about balance, so giving up extra in an area you are strong to fill weak places is the name of the game.
