The last line of his comment is a clue to what's really happening. I think that he's frustrated and wants to stir the pot, so he puts this A-Rod trade out there knowing fully that it would be vetoed. He knew he wasn't going to lose A-Rod. I've played with managers like that in our leagues... sore losers who give up after a month without even giving thier players a chance to perform. It would serve him right to lose A-Rod, but he's probably the type that wouldn't care either way whether the league becomes unbalanced. Just veto the trade, and get ready to veto a few more that he makes during the course of the year. A few teams will try to take advantage of his pettiness and work out another lopsided trade with him, so just be prepared and keep an eye on him.
I don't think so. I think this is just a bad fantasy player. He is not sabotaging the league, he is just making poor choices. This is the "Giants signing Zito" deal of our league, and to a degree, some of these poor deals should go through. I can honestly say there is no collusion nor malice.
I was in basketball league once and I only wanted UConn alum. I didnt like basketball enough to want to follow anyone but UConn alum, and since that includes a pretty good pool of players, or at least it was at the time, Ray Allen, Butler, Okafor, etc, I was very biased in my trades. Good people make bad decisions, that's all this is.
