Outside of collusion, every team owner has the right to run his team any way he wants. Who the heck are you (or I) to say he can't make a "bad" trade? I'm all for educating owners when they make a bad trade...sending a quick e-mail to let them know what they did...but I wouldn't dare tell them they can't make a trade because I think it's imbalanced.
I've seen enough "bad" trades turn out to be good trades that it's simply not worth trying to make this determination.
The Comish shouldnt but the league should veto.
Wheres the line between a stupid trade and collusion?
In Football I talked about a lopsided trade in one league where I was out of contention, and in return I wouldve recieved a similar tradeoffer in another league from the same manager where I had a chance to win.
I didnt wanna do it, so it never materialized.
It wouldve been clearly collusion. But since noone wouldve known about it, just a bad trade.
Ive seen enough bad trades turn out to be worse than anyone would ever imagined, so that doesnt prove anything.
ANd Im glad that the league vetoed some of my trades cause I make stupid things too, although I won 13 of 20 baseball leagues I played in.
