Trade between Last Place Team and Third Place Team - Unfair?

Postby springfield atoms » Mon Jun 04, 2007 1:22 pm

Thanks in advance for replies

This looks a little like collusion to me because of the fact that it's between a team high in the standings and in dead last, the team in third place just made a stink about another trade, and the deal just looks unfair.

The Third Place team is getting:

Jose Reyes
Brian Roberts


The Last Place team is getting:

Jimmy Rollins
Jose Lopez
Matt Cain

Standard yahoo 5X5 league.

Doesn't seem like cheating to me, just a crappy trade for the last place guy. Consider that he's maybe inexperienced at the game, which set him in last place. It's obviously not an even deal to the seasoned veteran, but maybe he's not a seasoned veteran. Kudos to the guy in third :).

Unfair? Yes. But then again, how many trades these days are "fair." It's clearly not cheating though to me.

I can't say clearly without knowing all of the facts but I would definitely let that 1 go through.
