Has anyone ever done this before?

Is it weird to trade the player you traded for earlier in the year BACK to the team you got him from? Is there less of a likelihood that the other owner accepts since he already owned that player?

Here is the situation...

Earlier in the year I was desperate for a closer, as pretty much everyone was lol. I ended up doing this trade

I gave: Sheffield/C. Patterson/Brazoban
I got: Nathan/H. Matsui

I figured Brazoban wouldn't be closing forever, so no big deal there (well he's closer AGAIN, but still no regrets on that trade), and that Hideki and Sheff would be pretty close this year. Hideki's starting to warm up so no big deal. But now looking over my team and his, I'm in 1st, he's in last, and the tables have turned in terms of closers. I have an excess of closers through FA pickups (Hermanson/Turnbow/Reitsma/Street/Weathers), while his only closer is Wickman now that Gagne hit the DL, and was thinking of offering him

My: Nathan
His: Sheffield

Has anyone else done this before? It seems kinda awkward lol.

16 team league

original trade was my jimmy rollins, my 7th and 9th round picks, and my second minor league pick

i got peavy and his 6th round pick

i ended up picking konerko, whom i traded (thank god)

Rollins/Guardado/Odalis Perez/Howard
for
Peavy/Foulke/Arroyo/Teahan/Blanton

it's actually not that bad since i have harden, bonderman, and RJ. crosby also went down and i needed a SS option. so that trio is gonna be pretty good for me for awhile

I do it all the time. Sometimes even more than once. If I feel that a player will help my team at any given moment, I'll trade for him. It's especially useful to trade away a slow starter (like an Aubrey Huff) and then reacquire him later in the season).

Sure, why not? It's not like you hurt the player's feelings or anything :-D

I'm in the process of trying to buy back Juan Pierre right now, at a significantly lower price than I sold him very early for. If you can do something like that, it's all the better.

Hah. Yeah, who cares? I traded Ichiro (in a deal getting Tejada and Abreu) and tried to get him back. Wasn't accepted though. Damn shame too, it was right before his two recent homers.

Haven't re-dealt a player I got in trade, but last year I attempted to trade Dunn after one of his 5-HR weeks to the cat that dropped him two weeks into the season (and who I subsequently got on waivers).
The other owner declined and was particularly pithy about the offer !+).
