Shady trade?

Postby shawngee03 » Tue Jul 31, 2007 3:08 pm

2nd place team tarding away...chien ming wang, ryan franklin, wandy rod
7th place team trades sabathia, nick markakis, edgar rentaria, claudio vargas

i question it bc ive played in many leagues w these guys, and everyone is competitive, so i never would have thought that they would do something like this. and the guy 'dumping' his players is only one spot out of the playoffss...and its a free league!

before i start bashing them for possible collusion, i want some input to make sure there is no way thsi could be a fair deal.

I would say my immediate impression not a snowballs chance in hell this trade is even close, and REEKS of player dumping.

Franklin is WW in pretty much every but the deepest of deep leagues. Wandy is borderline in most standard leagues.

Wang is ok, but he's not worth Sabathia, markakis, or Renteria, let alone all 3.

This is 100% veto, and I really can't see how anyone could argue that its not player dumping.

That's worth a veto and a half. If it isn't collusion, I'd be shocked. :-t

Coming from someone who despises vetoes and typically only supports them in cases of collusion, this one should be vetoed regardless.

Sabathia >>> Wang
Markakis+Renteria >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Nothing.

Wandy, Franklin, and Vargas are all pretty much worth nothing.
