Something fishy is going on

Postby Jimmy103 » Wed Jun 20, 2007 6:51 pm

I have had 2 managers make 3 trades in the span of a couple days

Trade #1 (June 12th)
Team 1 Receives: Curtis Granderson (Det - CF), Rich Hill (ChC - SP), Huston Street (Oak - RP),
Team 2 Receives: Andruw Jones (Atl - CF), Julián Tavárez (Bos - SP,RP)

Trade #2 (June 18th)
Team 1 Receives: Andruw Jones (Atl - CF), Lance Berkman (Hou - 1B,RF), Jeremy Guthrie (Bal - SP,RP), Jon Lester (Bos - SP)
Team 2 Receives: Travis Hafner (Cle - 1B), Curtis Granderson (Det - CF), Rich Harden (Oak - SP), Pat Neshek (Min - RP)

Trade #3 (Pending since June 19th)
Team 1 Receives: Nick Markakis (Bal - LF,CF,RF), Tom Gorzelanny (Pit - SP), Chuck James (Atl - SP,RP)
Team 2 Receives: Ben Sheets (Mil - SP), Rich Hill (ChC - SP)
Team 2 Drops: Huston Street

The deals basically boil down to this:
Ben Sheets, Travis Hafner, Rich Harden, Pat Neshek, Julian Tavarez
for
Nick Markakis, Tom Gorzelanny, Chuck James, Lance Berkman, Jeremy Guthrie, Jon Lester


Anyone else have any situations like this where 2 managers will make multiple trades in a short period and they are tossing back and forth some of the same players? Any advice on what I should do?

1st and 9th (out of 10)

The thing is, it's not like ARod for Mike Lowell....it's just odd to keep swapping guys back and forth

Do you know both managers?

I am going to go out on a limb and guess the team that received Sheets and Hafner is in 1st place.

I am guessing there's collusion, most likely just one owner with two teams. If there isn't find a new league. Obviously, if there is collusion you should kick the manager out/find a new league.

Basically, find a new league.

I do know both managers...but you're right Sheets/Hafner did go to the 1st place team.
