Crazy Trades 2008

Postby duckbillgates » Sat Apr 26, 2008 6:26 pm

I know Sportsline and ESPN allow you to see recent trades from other leagues, and sometimes they are so jaw-dropping they deserve to be shared.

For example, I just saw this trade today:

Johnny Cueto
Chris Duncan
Alex Gordon
Rich Hill
Jason Isringhausen
Kelly Johnson
James Loney
Oliver Perez
Alex Rodriguez
Joakim Soria
Troy Tulowitzki

FOR

Jose Reyes

That's right. An 11-for-1 trade. And it apparently went through.

So keep an eye out when you're scouting players and if you see a trade that makes you chuckle, share it here.

NOTE: Please don't post trade questions here, just examples and discussion of wild trades.

Not to be an A-Hole, but I do not see the point in this post. Obviously this trade is from a free league where everything goes. Crazy trades from money leagues would be a better topic.

In my money league someone accept Jason Barlett and RJohnson for Cano. Somebody doesn't understand the concept of a slow start. %-6
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

But you are being an A-Hole, or at least a snob. Who cares about money leagues? Is that where most cafe members play? :-P

This one isn't about baseball, but the original post made me remember it...

3-4 years ago someone offered me there entire team for Mario Lemieux. Literally. Everyone on their roster.

You'd have to drop your whole team to accept the trade :P I bet there were no "can't cut" lists back then too.
Ichiro? No...
Dunn? No...
Ichiro Dunn! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average
Adam Suzuki! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average
Double the fun!

Yep. On top of that he didn't have more than 1 or 2 guys I would have played over my guys.

Cano was dropped in one of my leagues. That's worse than a trade - drop him and you get NOTHING in return!

I think it's obvious enough that they were cheating.
