Trade Ethics Question...

Postby jealousblues » Thu Jun 08, 2006 2:37 am

I just had a trade approved for my Wood, Sexon, and Coffey for HIs Abreu.

Now it looks like Wood is hurt, or not. He only pitched 3 innings his last start and is having his shoulder examined...but Yahoo says the Cubs arnt too worried about it.


SO what to do? I feel fortunate nough to have the trade accepted.

DO I talk to him and offerhim up another pitcher? and redo the trade and wait another couple days. Do we let the trade go through, then have me trade him another pitcher for Wood. Do I tell the comish, or just let the trade go through?

Also, I feel bad because two weeks ago I dealt Edmonds...who turned out to be hurt a couple days later.

What to do?

No apologies or counteroffer necessary IMHO. Any manager worth his snuff knows that Wood is injury prone. Caveat emptor.

That's just luck of the draw, once the trade is accepted it's done, you can't back out cause one of the guys gets hurt.

Personally I think if Wood was playing he would have robbed you. Abreu stinks.

You are the first person ever on this board who ive met that thought Wood had any value whatsoever.

also, Abreu contributes in most all cats.
Wood has hardly pitched the last two years, was never that good anyway, as bad as you think Abreu has been Sexon has been 10X's worse, Coffey is ok. But I already have Rivera, Lidge and Fuentes. Plus Im two slots over my roster limit, ane i have to clear room for Hamels and Patterson to return.

If Abreu stinks, then I want my team to stink too. ;-D

You shouldn't do anything but take Abreu and be happy. You are not obligated to give him another pitcher. He will always be an injury risk, and they aren't even sure if anything is wrong with him.

Abreu stinks? That would lead me to believe that you know absolutely nothing about baseball. If you are talking about his lollygagging and lack of hustling then I agree with you but when it comes down to fantasy - he is a stud even if he is only batting .270!

He'll still you top 10 runs, top 10 rbi's, avg home runs, good sb's, tons of walks, tb's and more.

Anyway, as for the trade I would feel bad for the other manager but that is the nature of the beast! Once it's accepted - nothing you can do about it!

Yeah, it's just a case of bad luck. One of my leagues, I traded for Hideki Matsui the day before he broke his wrist. Sucks to be on the receiving end of it, but it could just have easily been the guy I traded away who got hurt.

Just got to grin and bear it! !+)

seriously, Wood is not even all that valuable to begin with.

I suffered through Abreu's crapfest last year, and trust me he's terribly overrated. He'll give you two weeks at a time when he'll pile up most of his stats (like that multi-game homerfest he had) and then the rest of the year he'll limp along like any of the thousands other OF out there.
When he's hot he's a stud, but after that? He's just like everyone else.

The Cubs aren't worried about it. Nice.

If Prior's or Wood's pitching arms were severed by a line drive on live television and everyone in the nation saw the lifeless arm lying in the dirt, the Cubs would probably call it "a mild shoulder separation".
