Sure, but the real question is why Chris Duncan was involved...if it's some big pre-arranged collusion thing, there must be better players on the team who's trading away Reyes...why would he want Duncan...and a few of the other guys as well. Seems counterproductive since he's going to have to drop better players. :-? :-)

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


He was dropped in my league. Needless to say he's sitting on my bench right now......hopefully in my starting lineup soon. :*)

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.


Man, as much as I hate vetoes, that one stinks so bad a commish would HAVE to intervene... %-6


Totally. I mean, if Soria wasn't included, I'd have to let this one through, but he just puts it over the top into an unfair trade. :*)

Mike Jacobs
Brad Lidge
Justin Verlander

for

Conor Jackson
Brian Fuentes
Carlos Gomez

This deal was just made today. Keep in mind that last week in this league CoJack and Fuentes were both free agents. So instead of having the wherewithal to PICK UP Conor Jackson this putz trades Justin Verlander for him? %-6

Mines not baseball either, but I played in a hockey sorta money league (10 bucks) where, after about 1 month, the first place guy traded his entire team to the last place guy. The idea of vetoing came in, but the guy made a logical argument.

If you're not joking, please explain that "logical argument"...

If they swapped teams it wouldn't change the rosters in the league. The guy in first was probably there because of a combination of luck and skill. The guy in last was probably there because of a combination of back luck and a lack of skill...if they swapped rosters, then the better manager would be working with a last place team...perhaps because he wants to bring the last place team to first to show his utter dominance or something...that last place guy gets the better team, but will most likely manage it with less skill than the previous manager...allowing for every other manager in the league not involved in the trade to improve. That being said it would piss me off to no end...I want to compete against the best fantasy managers, and that sort of self-imposed handicap would take all the satisfaction out of the league for me.

If he just meant one guy traded his entire roster for one guy...then I really can't imagine a logical argument unless the last place team only had one guy on his entire roster.
