Cheating for the playoff run?

Postby Midnight_Toker » Wed Aug 01, 2007 3:48 pm

I'm currently in 1st place in my H2H, 8 team keeper. The second place team has a pending trade going through with the 5th place team. He's getting Aramis and Hudson and giving up Halladay. Is it just me or is this trade extremely unfair?

Personally, I think the 5th place team is just trying to help the 2nd place team by offering this deal. What do you guys think?

The key here is the intentions of the teams involved. If you are certain that the fifth place team is colluding with the second place team, then yes, it must be vetoed. It looks pretty bad to me, as Aramis is more valuable than Halladay by himself. Has the fifth place team been active over the last couple months? If not, I'd say you have a pretty good case for a veto.

Yeah, its definitely unfair as just Aramis > Halladay. If it were just those two, I'd say that the needs of each team dictated the trade and it would be fine, but I don't understand Hudson in the deal. The only reasonable explanation I can think of is that the guy getting Halladay would have dropped Hudson anyhow to pick up a bat off of free agency - normally that'd be insane, but this is an 8 team league, so its VERY shallow.
