Fantasy baseball dream- multiple team trades

Postby chadlincoln » Mon Jul 18, 2005 5:53 pm

I wish that Yahoo, CBS, or somebody would allow you to do multiple team trades. I'd love to work out deals like that where I could do 3-4 way deals with multiple teams. Basically a team would be informed of the players they would be receiving and the players they are giving up. They could also see who they're giving their players to. All teams would have to click accept for the deal to go through. Is there anywhere that allows this?

I've managed to accomplish one 3-way trade each year for the last three seasons... But the only way I've been able to do'em is via messenger and e-mail... But I agree that it'd be sweet if there were a way to orchestrate them via the fantasy site itself.

If your commish has control of teams...he could force a trade through like this. I tried a three way deal once and of course one guy backed out halfway through the player swap. Luckily I was the commish of the that league and helped him along...but in general I would not trust another owner to keep his word.

I make 3 team trades all the time in my league. Theyre usually harder to work out but all I had to do in my league was make a post saying that it was a 3 sport deal, and then send out multiple trades so that the players are on the correct teams

We do three team or four team deals too. It gets complex and is a trust issue, but it gets done.

I know you can agree on through message board on deals. What I'm saying is that if it was built into Yahoo or whatever that you could offer through the system just like you do with trades with one team now.

its possible now, but you have to trust the other owners. i get what your saying that if there was a way to do it through one big trade proposal type thing rather than a bunch of little trades. that would be nice...
