One manager just dropped Vernon Wells too pick up Toby Hall! Rest assured...I will have that manager pegged as a sucker the rest of the season.
...It must be satisfying to win such a competative league.
I'd say if you don't have a quality league you play in every year with the same good owners, start paying attention to who the quality people are in your Yahoo leagues this season. If you are in more than one, that'd be even better, as you would get to scout more owners. Then keep in contact with the good ones and start your own private league on Yahoo next season.
You want owners that are both knowledgable (i.e. good at fantasy baseball) and active (post a lot, talk smack in good taste, always edit their line-up, make trades, and watch the waivers & free agents). If you can find ten or twelve people that are both, you're set. Then you don't have to worry. But, when you join a random public league, you are leaving the quality of owners up to random chance.
I know it is slightly off topic, but being on either end of an unballanced trade doesn't make your league any better. You'll probably end up with a couple teams that are already out of it before the fantasy season is half over, who won't even bother to check their teams the last two months of the season. That doesn't make competition fun.Of course, I realize that there are a ton of people on Yahoo that don't much care to play unless they are going to win--like the bastards that play Spades that quit the game after they have a bad first hand.
