I've already done it this season. Right after my draft I traded Odalis Perez and the #1 waiver for Mussina. It's worked out pretty nicely with the only exception being that the other owner hasn't used it yet so I've been screwed all year in trying to get guys off waivers.

I don't see anything wrong with it although since a lot of the FB interfaces don't support it without commish interaction it's often more of a hassle than it's worth.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Not done in real baseball...sorry, no, I don't like it. Makes collusion a bigger possibility and break away from actual baseball. :-t .

Agreed, Not done in the real world, so why allow it in fabtasy baseball? Complicates things needlessly and serves no real purpose.
